Lawyers Lacy and Hugo are hired to investigate a claim from an anonymous report about a dirty judge using an Indian casino illegally to take money from. As the lawyers reveal truth there are unfortunate deaths and more than enough bad people.
I read this because of a book club I had been in. The theme for the month was Grisham’s books. I had not read one of his in years. The last probably being Pelican Brief around the time the movie came out. I felt that the book had so much action and suspense. So I was hoping for a similar story like his blockbuster The Firm.
Unfortunately, the thrill was gone from this book. How he stretched out this story over 350 pages is beyond me. This was barely a conversation over coffee with a friend. About halfway through we lose a character that I assume we are supposed to care about losing but to be honest none of them mattered to me. The crimes that were done were not a surprise it is pretty much stated in the beginning what the dirty criminals had done. There were no big surprises or big horrifying truth revealed.
I know Grisham has some good books but this for me was not one of them. Definitely not a legal thriller I considered his books to be.
