Publisher's Summary

From John Grisham, America's number one best-selling author, comes the most electrifying novel of the year, a high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of the Sunshine State.
We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity and impartiality are the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the orderly and efficient flow of justice.
But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? It's rare, but it happens.
Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption.
But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states and throughout US history.
What's the source of the ill-gotten gains? It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed the casino and is now helping itself to a sizable skim of each month's cash. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way. It's a sweet deal: Everyone is making money.
But now Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with the Board on Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous.
Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

It's John Grisham, right?

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

Worst Grisham book ever!

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.
