I love Grisham because his books are real world, exciting and well written. Unfortunately, in this one the author works so hard to make his point that he abandons his craftmanship. His characters, heroes and villians alike, are little more than cartoon cardboard cut-outs. Grisham could have written a hard-hitting asault on the death penalty, but instead he chose to take the easy way out and wrote a cheesy 1950's western where the good guys all wear white hats and the bad guys black. Real life is never that clear cut. I guess this is what happens when the author's name on the book cover is bigger than the title.
