8 out of 10

I think I'd read this one before. The plot is intriguing, but like in most Grisham books, the bad guys never get their comeuppance. I guess not everyone lives happily ever after either.

To the finder,
Thank you for taking this book. I hope you enjoy it as much or more than I did. Please take a moment to log your find, either anonymously, or through an account on bookcrossing.com.

...me! What an unexpected treat, especially as I wasn't expecting any books at all. I'm not a huge Grisham fan, but I've enjoyed the books of his I've read, and I'll definitely want to read this before I pass it along.

Thanks so much, QOCMike!

This was a lot of fun. Lots of great details thrown in for amusement value. There were some objectionable stereotypes of gay men and I didn't care for that, but the comments did make sense in the mouths of the characters who said them, so I will give Grisham the benefit of the doubt there.

In a Florida prison, three former judges are running a prison scam. Elsewhere in the country, a Congressman is offered money and support to run for higher office on a rather sinister platform. Before long, the two groups are on a collision course. I was left guessing until the end about who would get what over on whom and whether anyone would crash and burn, and it didn't turn out nearly as I expected it to.

I don't plan to do anything that would get me sent to prison, but if I ever do, I hope it's a minimum security federal prison!

I will pass this book along or release it. Thanks again for the fun read!
