I really wanted to like this book. However, the characters were blah. It gets intense and I liked the ending. The plot was good but not put together well.

I usually rave about Grisham, but this story did not meet the mark for me. It was an okay story with a highly anticipated ending. There is a twist to the characters. I understood them maybe because I grew up in a Southern Mississippi town. Recommend.
