A very good author but such a tragic environment in which to be writing and trying to practice law. For those interested in the American 'justice' system Grisham is a must read. For those of us who do not have to contend with elected judges and biased juries in our court system the book underlines how fortunate we are not to be living in Texas.

I I feel the author skirted around the most glaring flaw in this story, the forced confession of a vulnerable citizen who felt they had nothing to hide and therefore gave up rights to a lawyer. If this is an ongoing problem in American police custody they should start by fixing that ability for bent cops to twist witness statements or psychologically torture witnesses until they admit to crimes they have not committed.
