It may seem an odd option to review a magazine coming up 10 years old, however this has been sitting on my shelf gathering dust, and as it's the only Grisham book I have not read, I chose to use it as i waited for the new Lee Child to come out. I'm glad I did so. - Bronx DUI LAWYER
It tells the storyline of Michael Brock, Corporate Lawyer earning lots of money, pretty wife, fast lane to partner status and millionairedom. Things are rosy until a bizarre incident occurs. A vagrant, a street dweller hijacks the lawyers inside their tower-block office and before he can explain his demands, special-forces blow him away. The vagrant's brains are splashed over Brock's face. It changes his outlook on life, but it might.
He starts to take a desire for the homeless, he resigns his cushy job and massive bucks, loses his wife, and represents pro bono unpaid legal work on behalf of the street people, and that is just the beginning of his journey.
This book concentrates attention on homeless people in American inner cities. Whether their plight has greatly changed in the intervening 10 years I have not a clue, but my guess is things haven't altered that much.
Remember with Mister Grisham's books the narrative rushes along. I used to be never tempted to duck any pages which is all too easy to understand why he's shifted numerous copies of his books through the years. I liked that one a whole lot. It had been thought provoking, retained my attention throughout, despite the fact that I type of guessed the ending well before I personally arrived there, I used to be never disappointed.
If you want Grisham, you may similar to this. If you do not like Grisham you will likely still enjoy it. Definitely recommended.
Coincidentally today John Grisham was at London to collect a very long time achievement award for amongst other things, selling over 250 million books. Incredibly he stated he had never won an award before. Perhaps writers ought to be more valued by people, and feted too. - Bronx DUI LAWYER
