A sleepy little resort town in Florida, quiet, reserved completely off the radar for drama and excitement………..until some mistakes and miscues elsewhere in the world pinpoint Santa Rosa as the center of the action!
Grisham builds the main players in the drama by their function in the mystery. One of the main themes is how do you justify lying and cheating and misleading people to trust you and then suddenly set them up for a fall? What kind of person does that make you? You actually care about all of the participants EXCEPT the “real” criminals. But why do you?
You are ready to say at the end of the book……………”Well, I really don’t like the way it ended!” And then you end the book and feel all warm and cozy and say to the walls, “Yep, don’t know how he does it, but Grisham has done it again!” And immediately you go online and buy the next JG book in line!
