Review Copy from: My own personal copy
My Rating: 2
When Mitchell McDeere qualified third in his class at Harvard, offers poured in from every law firm in America. The firm he chose was small, but-well respected. They were prepared to match, and then exceed Mitch’s wildest dreams: eighty thousand a year, a BMW and a low-interest mortgage. Now the house, the car and the job are his. Then the nightmares begin: the secret files, the bugs in the new bedroom, the mysterious deaths of colleagues, and the millions of dollars of mob money pouring through the office into the Cayman Islands, dollars that the FBI would do anything to trace. Now Mitch is in the place where dreams end and nightmares begin…
Thoughts & Opinions:
I’ve always been a big mystery fan and you can’t read mysteries without knowing John Grisham. I fell in love with his legal thrillers after reading only one of his books and made a vow to read all of his work. While I enjoyed the first two I’ve read, this one was a letdown.
Everything worked. The story, the characters, the writing. I just couldn’t seem to get into it. To be honest, I felt kind of bored reading it. I don’t know if there wasn’t enough action, the way everything was presented or what. Maybe it was just me. I almost made this a DNF but I decided to push through it and see if it got better. Unfortunately, it didn’t.
