** spoiler alert ** I enjoyed this one quite a bit, but....

I got into the intrigue, especially once Kyle started attempting to turn the tables on Bennie & Nigel. But then came the ending. What is with Grisham these days? I didn't like the ending. I did not DESPISE the ending, as I did with Grisham's last book (The Appeal), but I found it entirely unsatisfying. Just give me a good, old-fashioned, bad-guys-get-their-butts-kicked ending anyday!

Miguel De The Associate (j Grisham)

John Grisham did it again!
The bad guys win!
The same happended in The Appeal.

This is my last book of him that I buy.

Jaxxrunner I think he wanted people to hate the ending of The Appeal, since that book was making a strong political point.

message 3: by Dan (new) - rated it 3 stars

Dan Campbell The book was outstanding until the last few chapters. The main character goes on with his life, but there is no closure on the real bad guys in the story. It looks like Grisham got tired of writing, and just closed the book, and left all of his readers looking for a real ending.
