His second marriage in a shambles, he is emerging from his fourth stay in rehab armed with little more than his fragile sobriety, good intentions, and resilient sense of humor. Returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it's going to be murder.Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world with all its strivings and trappings and encumbrances, and went to live and work with a primitive tribe of Indians in the deepest jungles of Brazil.In a story that mixes legal suspense with a remarkable adventure, their lives are forever altered by the startling secret of The Testament.


What the Critics Say

"His hordes of fans won't be disappointed: Grisham includes his trademark legal wrangling, zippy plot, and engaging minor characters, but there's a fresh energy and a new element. God." (USA Today)

The Testament

This is my first John Grisham Book. I enjoyed it. He is a very detailed writer and brings to life the remorse of someone who is fighting an addition. I loved the adventure when he goes to find the unknown daughter and the decison that has to be made. And the ending was unexpected.

An excellent, intriguing read

It takes a man that has destroyed his life and in Grisham's unique way moves him to a place where he has the chance to make a change. The question is, will he and what extra ordinary circomstances happen. Well worth the 'listen'.
