With so many books published, you might wonder if John Grisham's talent would start to wane. After all, how could he possibly keep his stories interesting, his characters varied, and new plot twists to excite and entertain the reader? On our recent holiday, Grisham's The Racketeer was the first book I read, and I have to admit, it's very, very good. Better, even than some of his previous offerings, with a delicious plot that will long stick in the mind.
The book begins with Malcolm Bannister, a lawyer who is in prison. He was caught up in some shady business unawares and framed by the FBI. But his time in prison hasn't been wasted. He's plotting revenge - which comes to fruition when a judge is murdered, and Malcolm is convinced he knows who did it. Cue the most exciting, thrilling book as the story races through twists to reach a glorious conclusion. It'll leave you guessing for a long time!
Some of Grisham's previous stories seemed to be moral tales with a rant attached, but this is back to Grisham at his best, telling a great story with tension, intrigue, danger, and ingenuity at every turn. If you've liked Grisham in the past, you'll love this. If you've never read his offerings before, then plunge into this one. Fantastic. The Racketeer is available from Amazonand is currently on Kindlefor £1.99.
