Grisham is an excellent story teller and this was a well written book with the action pretty much continuous after the first third. Lacy Stolz is a lawyer and investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. Along with a small team, she investigates misconducts by Florida judges. A tipster uncovers a large syndicate skimming money from casinos.Another good Grisham story. ( )

This was the best John Grisham suspense novel that I've read in a long time. Nonetheless, it is still a bit of a dry procedural novel. ( )

I love John Grisham! Whenever I pick up one of his books my family complains that I constantly have my nose in a book. lol This book was no different. I was captivated by the story, characters and could not wait to find out how everything would be resolved. I really found the Indian reservation portion of the story very interesting. Highly recommend. ( )

Decent and quick read. Always a big fan of Grisham's easy but entertaining books

John Grisham writes technical novels, but with an ease that allows the "common folk" to enjoy the story. The novel deals with the Indian reservations and casinos on the reservation. I do not know what percentage of the story relates fact, but the story fills me with wonder and awe. The ending of the novel seems too tame, and I do not feel that the ending could be so calm. The greed of people haunts the story. When is wealth, too much? The characters present interesting backgrounds, but the reader never learns the true mysteries of the characters. The novel presents an easy read but fails to delve into the character's psyche. ( )
