I've never missed a Grisham book so when I bought it, tried it, and did not like it at all, I returned it. Having misgivings, I repurchased the audiobook, kept it, and -- I can't believe I'm saying this -- will not finish a John Grisham book.
The main character, who could be a very smart, brave woman, is voiced to be some lame character escaped from a Joan Collins book. It's not just the narration, which is dull and middle-schoolish, it's the dumbed down dialogue and what appears to be an indecision on the author's part as to which characters should be endearing and which ones the reader will root against. For me, not one character stirred any interest at all, so I guess the ending, whatever it is, doesn't mean anything to me either.
Now I'll decide whether to risk being thought deranged and return the book a second time or just kiss the credit goodbye. Maybe I'll check my Audible Library for The Racketeer and relisten to a really good Grisham book

I have waited months for the next John Grisham book. I've never been disappointed...until now. This book has no depth, no substance and the narrator has zero personality! It drags on and on. Agonizing is the best description. Tune to put the quill away John. Should have stopped while you were on top.
