Of his recent books, near the top. The novel would pair well with Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy. While this may not be Grisham's best work, it was engaging and a quick read. Definitely recommend it.

Not so good...many racial comments emphasizing negative stereotypes.. disappointing from such a well known author

One of his better recent stories and more like his earlier works. Definitely worth a read.

Found it a great read. It was exciting throughout and a page turner. The first book I read by Grisham which got me hooked on him so that I have read all of his books was The Client. That was back in 1993. As I read The Guardians I had the same feelings of really enjoying the read and not wanting to put the book down. He tied it up nicely at the end but I still didn't want to put it down! Fantastic author.

I did not enjoy this book. Like so many of Grisham's recent works, this one is slow to start and just plods along. I put it down midway and will not start again. Slow, dull, and unexciting.

One of John Grisham's best books, in my opinion. A crooked cop & his flunkies put away an innocent man for murder. 23 years later, a lawyer picks up his story and tries to exonerate him. I won't say what happens (don't want to ruin the suspense!), but it's a fun ride, and an amazing book. Highly recommended!

Thoroughly enjoyable and totally believable. I was hooked from page 1, and it didn't end until I was done with the book.

Sounds familiar.

Just finished Grisham's new book and I really enjoyed it. I cared about the characters and was engrossed in the workings of the Guardian Group as well as the F B I which played a big part in getting the bad guys. Another great Grisham legal thriller.

I enjoyed this one! Reminded me of why I love Grisham’s legal thrillers! Good character development and great characters! Hard to believe that this really happens! So sad that it does!
