I'm sure it's partly because after reading Grisham novels I didn't expect much from it, but I really enjoyed this book :D

In a nutshell, our protagonist Penn Cage returns to his home-town for some much needed rest for himself and his daughter after the death of his wife. In reality a chance quote published in a local rag ends with Cage embroiled in a 30-year-old racial murder investigation with its roots in the heart of the town and with conspiracy as far-reaching as the FBI.

I felt the book had great similarities to John Grisham (a thriller/courtroom-drama set in the American deep south, with race as a major factor), I felt this book far surpassed Grisham in so many ways! The sheer entertainment factor and page-turnability gripped me so much more and the characters seemed more believable (and likeable!).
