I liked this one -- less lawyer-y and more Bourne Identity-ish, it was still very Grisham. I really liked the new setting (he's branched *far* away from the South -- all the way to Bologna, Italy, and then some). This one definitely had an international flavor, and I appreciated it. It was fun to armchair visit some places I've been and others I haven't yet. I felt like I was really there -- as well as Grisham describes those muggy summer courthouses that are "Old South" and have no air conditioning; he brought the same type of research to this book.

A good, quick read. Definitely suspenseful, but not as disturbing as some of his books.
