We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity is the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe?

His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. When the case is assigned to Lacy, she immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

Nothing is ever as easy as it seems and there are always layers.

I admit it. I love John Grisham’s books. I do. I got into this one thinking it would be one thing and was pleasantly surprised the book became more. The writing is sharp, but like talking to a friend and sucked me right in.

Lacy isn’t the character I thought she’d be. Then again, this wasn’t the book I thought it’d be. I expected something more straightforward, but the story is layered and complex. There is always more than meets the eye. Lacy comes across rather simplistic, but through the story she grows and it was nice to see it. I hated what she had to go through, but the struggle was worth it.

If you’re looking for a story where there’s a bad guy, some not so bad, but not so good guys and lots of good guys, then this might be the one you’re looking for. Give it a shot.
