As with all his books, Grisham offers interesting characters and a suspenful story. However, he leaves so much unanswered at the end that I felt very disappointed. I read 464 pages and it was like Grisham got tired and did not want to write anymore. Very unlike him to do this.

I enjoyed reading about familiar characters including Jake Brigance, Judge Noose, and Sheriff Ozzie from the town of Clanton, Mississippi. The story line is a good one; including social issues like domestic abuse and poverty. The book did leave some questions unanswered.

I thought it was great. A little of a let down at the end, but in reality was probably correct. Grisham rarely disappoints. I recommend this if you are a Grisham fan and especially a Brigance fan.

I enjoyed it right up until the end. the day after I finished it I picked it up to continue reading and had a moment where I thought I had missed something with the ending. I skimmed through the last 2 chapters to make sure I had finished it! then I thought maybe it was me missing something but after reading several of the reviews here I realize I didn't miss anything, it was not a strong ending and lots of loose ends.

Too long of a book to have such a disappointing ending with too many loose ends. For me, this was his worst book.

I enjoyed it, the storyline was good and the characters entertaining. At times it was slow, too much fluffy narrative. The ending left room for a sequel. Great book to pass the winter months with.

This book reminded me of his early books, where you never knew what was going to happen next. Or what tricks his main character had up his sleeve that Grisham hadn't revealed as yet. Wonderfully paced and I enjoyed reading all but how he chose to end the book. Not a traditional Grisham ending is all I can say.
