This is a good Grisham novel. It has substance. It primarily deals with the subject of homelessness and how the poor are viewed by the society at large, particularly how big business holds money as more important than the lives of homeless women and children. Grisham handles the subject in a sensitive yet entertaining way.
As a result of a life threatening trauma, Michael makes a life changing decision. However, it is my opinion that because of his personality and character, he could have made the life changing decision without the intervening trauma. This is the kind of Grisham that I like, an easy listen. Well narrated by Frank Muller who uses the right amount of skills and performance to bring you right into the story. Recommend....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This was the first audiobook I bought with my first credit and I loved it. Grisham could develop characters when he wrote this book. I don't like his more recent work as much. I think this book and The Testement are his best.
What did you like best about this story?
You really got to know the characters in this book like Michael Brock, Mordicai Green, and even Mister. Grisham also put you right into a winter in D.C. And Frank Muller was masterful!
Have you listened to any of Frank Muller???s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Frank Muller is one of my very favorites. A lot of people say he's "breathy" but that's him and it makes it good.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I usually listen to it every winter. It listens better in the cold.
