This is a typical Grisham novel. Lots of twisting plot surprises, interesting southern characters and knowledge in the law, normally I wouldn't be interested in. Grisham is in his game and leave nothing out, race, money and sex or at least the implic ...more

“If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.”
Gordon A. Eadie

Jim Henson
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
Jim Henson

Molly Harper
“I am your sire. I am to guide you through your first days as a vampire. Your first feeding is a rite of passage, a sacrament. It will not be wasted on some hormone-driven frenzy. This is why I wanted you to feed from me.”
“I will not drink it in a house, I will not drink it with a mouse. I will not drink it here or there, I will not drink it anywhere,” I wheezed, hoping I was able to communicate adequate sarcasm through the crippling belly cramps.
“Did you just quote Green Eggs and Ham?”
Molly Harper, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs

Stephen King
“When you're twenty-one, life is a roadmap. It's only when you get to be twenty-five or so that you begin to suspect that you've been looking at the map upside down, and not until you're forty are you entirely sure. By the time you're sixty, take it from me, you're fucking lost.”
Stephen King, Joyland
