Audiobook read by Michael Beck who was very goodWhat happened to the flashlightDoes it matter ha At times I was on the verge of some serious laughterOther times I simply enjoyed the goodness and warmth I felt from Cullen Posta priest volunteer attorney and overall likable guywho was committed to freeing a prisoner who was wrongly accused The suspense was predictable but the dialogue characters kept me engaged It was slow in parts Yet as an audiobook I didn t mind When soaking in a garden warm pool slow was ok Its been years since I read a John Grisham s book Kinda fun 35 ish

In the small north Florida town of Seabrook a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night The killer left no clues behind There were no witnesses no real suspects no one with a motive The police soon settled on uincy Miller a young black man who was once a client of Russo’suincy was fram. As a longtime John Grisham fan I was hopeful that this fictional offspring of the earlier Grisham masterpiece The Innocent Man would be a compelling read Instead Grisham produced a very biased unrealistic look into the American judicial system that makes all of the judges prosecutors and sheriffs in the South look like a cross between Boss Hogg and something out of Mississippi Burning His contempt for the judicial system he used to be a part of is so evident it ruined the book for me The story follows the work of a group of lawyersreligious organization that work to get innocent people freed from prison The main character Cullen Post comes across as an ambitious self righteous lawyer that will do anything to help free the clients he deems as innocent He lies to witnesses provides money aka bribes to others in order to get statements that will help free his client all the while railing on all prosecutors and judges as being corrupt To me this was hypocrisy at its finest The plot was very predictable and to say that I have read other books with the same type of plot and characters would be an understatement As a lawyer and prosecutor in the South I can truthfully say that this book might be the most inflammatory untruthful treatment of the criminal justice system and the people who work to put guilty criminals behind bars that I have ever read I realize exceptions exist but to indict the whole system based on one corrupt prosecutor or a corrupt sheriff is unfair unrealistic and undermines the integrity of the entire criminal justice system Did I mention that I didn t like this book Lol

    After a few recent novels that failed to live up to Grisham's usual exacting standard I heard many people pondering whether his time as a master of the legal thriller was over Well in The Guardians he replies in a way which will shut the naysayers up pretty damn uickly; here he is back to his barnstorming best and I will undoubtedly be adding this to my favourite reads of 2019 The plotting is superb the characters engaging and the twists

    45 StarsI have been very pleased with the last few Grisham releases They have been decently intricate and felt a lot like some of his early work He takes what could easily be complicated legal jargon and dumbs it down without making the reader feel stupid At the same time the story is interesting and the charac
