Yvonne (ysareader) | 82 comments Thanks Diane.

First book of 2013
Dystopian novel about the earth's rotation slowing down and how this affects a young 11/12 year old girl and her family. Well written but had the potential to be a much more interesting story.

Yvonne (ysareader) | 82 comments This has less legalese than your typical Grisham book, but this one has the usual: morally ambiguous lawyer hero, a beautiful woman and some twisted little game playing.

There's lots of traveling in this one from the Federal prison in Maryland to the Caribbean but the main action takes place in Virginia
