I believe it was your typical adult thriller but with almost no sex (this was the 80s after all) and just the typical jumping the shark kinds of hijinks. I know it because both a film and a TV series based on the idea of toxic waste by powerful companies and the way they attack whistleblowers and that is all great but I honestly don't recall being blown away by the quality of the writing itself. Knew the ending, but still enjoyed it. Grisham has a way of writing a real pageturner. This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down. The suspense was intense, and the story was good.
When 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 entertainment.
Good 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 same.
The 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 more 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 flavor.
Go 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 characters.
Two 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 word.
At 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 FBI.
The Sway family started with nothing very much but now they have quite 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 ordeal.
What follows is a very intense cat and mouse thriller.
A highly readable tale. 4/5 stars.
