Critical Praise

"Some of the finest dialogue of his career ... Every detail rings clear and true, and nothing is wasted."

——The Seattle Times

"Characters that no reader will forget. .. prose as clean and strong as any Grisham has yet laid down ... and a drop-dead evocation of a time and place that mark this novel as a classic slice of Americana.

——Publishers Weekly

"The kind of book you read slowly because you don't want it to end ... John Grisham takes command of this literary category just as forcefully as he did legal thrillers with The Firm.... Never let it be said this man doesn't know how to spin a good yarn."

——Entertainment Weekly

"John Grisham is about as good a storyteller as we've got."

——The New York Times Book Review
