"Grisham's pleasure in relating the Byzantine complexities of Clanton (Mississippi) politics is contagious and he tells a good story...An enjoyable book."--Library Journal "Grisham excels!"--Dallas Times Herald "Grisham is an absolute master."--Washington Post "Grisham enraptures us."--Houston Chronicle
