The RacketeereBook - 2012
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In the history of the United States, only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five. His body is found in his remote lakeside cabin. There is no sign of forced entry or struggle. Just two dead bodies: Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. And one large, state-of-the-art, extremely secure safe, opened and emptied.
One man, a former attorney, knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and why. But that man, Malcolm Bannister, is currently residing in the Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. Though serving time, Malcolm has an ace up his sleeve. He has information the FBI would love to know. Malcolm would love to tell them. But everything has a price--and the man known as the Racketeer wasn't born yesterday.

Have to hand it to Grisham. Some may sneer, but he's nailed it again with a story about vengeance by a wrongly convicted man. Classify this in the cannot put it down category.

The longer I read this book, the more I found the plot to be unbelievably far-fetched and convoluted. Despite this, I kept reading because it was entertaining enough to keep me interested. I’m not sure that I’ll read another Grisham novel though.
