The Whistler by John Grisham

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I am reviewing an early sampler of the legal thriller, The Whistler by John Grisham.
Lacy Stoltz is investigating the judicial misconduct of one of the most corrupt judges in American history, where organised crime and murder are his favourite tools. How can she beat someone like that? Here are my thoughts:

^^ John Grisham definitely has a style of his own, which appeals to many of his fans, I must say I am one of them. He writes very well, and writes what he knows with a nice mix of law, order and resting scenes.

^^ I found the beginning of the story quite intriguing when Lacy and Hugo first meet Ramsey Mix. The whole setting up of the book, the dodgy judge, and all the implications, sounded so promising.

Overall: Unfortunately, with this early sampler I only got to read the first four chapters and was unsure how to write a review based on such a small part of the book. What I read was good, but whether it continued that way, I do not know. It’s a shame I wasn’t sent the whole book.

I received this from NetGalley, thanks to Hodder and Stoughton.
