I've read some reviews knocking this book for not being positive in any of the stories. I actually liked them specifically because they show another side of life, where people do bad things to good people and get away with it. Sure, it's not positive, but it is real. Unfortunately, life isn't always rainbows and roses.

As you would expect with a Grisham book, it's well-written. My only beef, as a Southerner in Arkansas, is his consistent misspelling of "y'all" (which he spells "ya'll"). It's a contraction of "you all". How can the apostrophe be after the "a"?

Good for those who like Grisham and Southern stories.
