Publisher's Summary

Trumble is a minimum security federal prison, a "camp," home to the usual assortment of relatively harmless criminals - drug dealers, bank robbers, swindlers, embezzlers, tax evaders, two Wall Street crooks, one doctor, and at least five lawyers. And three former judges who call themselves the Brethren: one from Texas, one from California, and one from Mississippi. They meet each day in the law library, their turf at Trumble, where they write briefs, handle cases for other inmates, practice law without a license, and sometimes dispense jailhouse justice. And they spend hours writing letters. They are fine-tuning a mail scam, and it's starting to really work. The money is pouring in. Then their little scam goes awry. It ensnares the wrong victim, a powerful man outside, a man with dangerous friends. The Brethren's days of quietly marking time are over.

Very interesting read

I can't say it was the best John Grisham book I have read, but I was interested in the stotyline right up until the last page.

The Judges

What made the experience of listening to The Brethren the most enjoyable?

All of the intertwines of those involved.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lake until he became stupid.<br/>

Have you listened to any of Michael Beck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

As stated each time this questions is asked: Michael Beck (Like John Grisham) is simply the best narrator…there is no comparison.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Lake decided to be ultra stupid and write Ricky the final letter and, the end, when it is assumed the judged were still appearing to be running the scam. <br/>Oh how true much of this book was to real and modern life. Wow.<br/>

Any additional comments?

This was a great book. Somebody just need to pay Michael Beck and get on with business. :)
