After my disappointment of Life After Life (DNF after 50 pages), I turned to one of my favorite authors to perk up my spirits . . . John Grisham. He rarely fails to entertain me on some level, and he did not disappoint with The Racketeer. I found the entire book to be engaging, and hard to put down. For me, this was another winner and look forward to his next. Woo!
