    Knew the ending but still enjoyed it

  2. Doug Cannon Doug Cannon says:

    Grisham has a way of writing a real page turner This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down The suspense was intense and the story was goodWhen I finished the last page and I finally did put it down I couldn't help thinking I had just wasted my time I mean I was thoroughly entertained for every minute of the book but when I was done I was left with nothing but the memories of my entertainmentGood book excellent author but lacking in anything real I've read 4 Grisham novels sometimes I just want to be entertained I guess If that's what you're looking for then Grisham is your man Pick any of his books They're all the sameThe movie was okay This is probably one of Grisham's weaker books but I'm not that good of a judge If you want 2 hours of great entertainment watch the movie If you want than that read the book Just like Grisham's novels each of my reviews of his novels is almost identical to the last with only certain details changed to give it a new flavorGo ahead Grisham sue me Then you can write a story about it

    This was a really terrific read a great story line with some memorable charactersTwo young boys brothers are unwitting witnesses to a suicide The older boy does all he can to stop the man from this act but to no avail The man shoots himself in the head but before doing so he tells the young boys Mark Sway his reason for doing it This information now marks Mark as a threat to the MOB The FBI is desperate for Mark to reveal all he’s been told but after being threatened by the MOB to keep his mouth shut or his brother and mother will suffer Mark is terrified to say a wordAt this point Mark gets Reggie Love a defence lawyer to protect him from all the law enforcement people and so protect him from the MOB Between Mark who doesn’t lack for cunning and intelligence and Reggie they manage to keep one step ahead of both the Mob and the FBIThe Sway family started with nothing very much but now they have uite literally nothing at all Their trailer home along with all their personal effects has been burned to the ground It’s up to Reggie and Mark to keep everyone safe whilst trying to do the right thing and hopefully survive this ordealWhat follows is a very intense cat and mouse thrillerA highly readable tale 45 stars

  4. Stephen Robert Collins Stephen Robert Collins says:

    I read this before the move was made This the perfect example of how very much American laws justices system is so different from British law special with childrenThis an excellent crime court room drama that only Grisham could write as he was trained court lawyer which is needed to get the facts dead right After all you need how to crack eggs to make an omelette you would not expect a bricklayer to try to make a swimming pool on upstairs flatThis like all his books twists turns like top in hands of a master spinner

  5. Patrick Patrick says:

    The book tells of a boy who happens upon a mob lawyer who commits suicide But before he commits suicide he divulges information on where the body of the murdered Senator was hidden by his mob boss Fearing reprisal by the mob or the FBI for lying he hires a lawyer to get him out of this mess I only slightly dislike this book because the premise of the book is weak I could not get over the fact that the kid could have avoided the whole suspense by telling the FBI the truth about the body of the Senator In that way he and his immediate family could have gone into the Witness Protection Program and considering his mother's miserable job the WPP would actually be step up from his current life Also his lawyer could have advised him to tell the FBI so the kid would be in WPP instead of a possible target of the mafia The excitement of the book did not have purpose to it so this is the reason the book suckedAnd what is wrong with Assistant Attorney General he already knew the kid was not talking because he was scarred for his life and the life of his family so could he not cut a deal with the FBI to expedite the WPP?What is wrong with the mother? Sure it would be a hastle to be in the WPP but their lives are already in danger So the WPP would actually be safer for them instead of having their identity known currently This is an idiotic and unbelievable plotI guess the only redeeming uality about this book is the relationship between the kid and the 52 year old lawyer in which they both alternated being the adult in the relationship For that I will give this book 15

  6. Suzanne Suzanne says:

    This was just what I wanted a uick read some action and a good fast paced storyline So what if the hero was a 10 year old boy I enjoyed it My attention was held throughout which is my sign of a good read and the main characters were all likeable Mark and Reggie were loveable in their own ways and it was fun seeing the youngster outsmart the thugs and the FBI I highly recommend this book if you're after an easy read

  7. Sumit RK Sumit RK says:

    Neither a court room dram nor a gripping thriller The climax is really over the top

  8. W W says:

    Murderthe mob and an eleven year old kidthis is a Grisham thriller with a humorous touchMark is an eleven year old kidwho lives with his mother and brother in a trailerHe witnesses the suicide of a mafia lawyerwho tells him an explosive secret before he diesA US senator is missingIs he even alive and if notwhere is the body ? Mark now knows something that both the FBI and the mafia are interested in finding outAs the pressure on him increaseshe succeeds in finding a female lawyer who specializes in helping abused childrenCombined with Mark's own resourcefulnesswill she be able to extricate him from the mess he finds himself in ?Fairly interestingbut as usual for Grisham longish

  9. Nancy Steinle gummel Nancy Steinle gummel says:

    I had seen the movie years ago so I had a general idea about the book The book is so much better than the movies The book goes into so much detail It's so life like with the Mob element and how devious the goverment is when trying to pursue their agenda

  10. Lili Marcus Lili Marcus says:

    It all started when Mark Sway 11 took his younger brother Ricky 8 in a secluded part of a park to teach him how to smoke They were just doing their business when a shiny car arrived and apparently the driver was trying to kill himself and did so by the end Suddenly Mark along with his brotherwho suffers a trauma became witnesses of not only a suicide of a well known lawyer but Mark knows than that This is a story of an 11 year old boy caught up in a legal drama too big for himself but he has help His 52 year old lawyer Reggie Loves will do everything to ensure Mark and his family is safe and that he's not being denied with all his rights  It's no secret that this book is the first real novel that I've ever read my entire reading life I was eight and because of this book I became a reader and started dreaming of becoming a writer someday So I might be biased with my rating and I'll tell you why in a moment this book isn't perfect First of all whatever genre you see on Goodreads listed with this book do NOT believe it Because if you go into this book thinking of a wrong genre you'll be disappointed This is NOT a legal Thriller not even a Mystery or Suspense this book is a plain Legal Drama period There's no secret or puzzle you as a reader would try to solve There is no on edge of the seat feeling Okay? And since this is not a whodunit thrillersuspense I do understand if the story doesn't appeal to everyone But interesting things happened very early in the book that I can say Grisham doesn't waste his time or mine and pages He got on with the juicy parts so earlyBut like I said this book isn't perfectIt's the plot What makes it NOT a thriller? because the plot was plain I'm not gonna call it weak but others might You see the whole conflict could've been avoided if Mark Sway our protagonist told the truth from the very beginning With little help from other especially from his amazing lawyer Reggie things could've been solved earlier But I like to think John Grisham really wanted this book to be character driven than plotwise unlike most of his booksAnd I must say he did a great job with it You see despite the plot and that despite the fact that you can guess everything including the end in 30% mark you'll still read the whole thing because by then you're already invested on Mark Sway and his lawyer The moment Mark was introduced in first chapter I was sold The opening scene with Mark trying to teach his younger brother how to smoke was just so adorable Not that I find smoking adorable but Mark really you have no choice but to love him He's one of the most interesting characters I knowI just love hearingreading his thoughts And I think Mark is top of the reasons why I fell in love with this book before John Grisham really did a great job introducing his MC in this way Mark's POV or voice is realistic for an 11 year old but his uniueness is apparent making him interesting than any other 11 year old I mean he calls his father his ex father hehe And the way he thinks of himself as the man in the house so he protects his mother and Ricky seriouslyAnd as soon as he became the center of this legal drama my heart went to him completely His fear is apparent it broke my heart He  was still smart and strong but that doesn't change the fact that he's just a kid No matter how many times he said he's mature enough He's a product of a broken family and of an abusive father but he turned out to be great kidOverall I highly recommend this book This isn't Grisham's best workI'll get to that soon as I reread all his books but you'll enjoy it Again mind the genre be sure you knwo the right genreHappy Reading Guys| Bookstagram | Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads | Blog |

About the Author: John Grisham

Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller he was working hours a week at a small Southaven Mississippi law practice sueezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novelBorn on February in Jonesboro Arkansas to a construction worker and a homemaker John Grisham as a child dreamed of.
