Totally unexpected for John Grisham.
Reviewed in Australia on 23 March 2019
This was not the type of John Grisham story I am used to. Nevertheless, it was well written and easy to read. I didn't need to jump over chunks of superfluous descriptions or longwinded unrelated activity.
The characters were believable and the poverty they were living under was treated sympathetically without reducing it's severity.
