The Judge’s List By John Grisham Review
John Grisham’s unpredictability is the only aspect of him that is predictable. He has appeared on more than 30 bestseller lists, but he has never allowed his writing to become repetitive or stereotypical. The John Grisham name is undoubtedly linked to courtroom thrillers, and for good reason. His work frequently has a legal foundation, starting with A Time to Kill and The Firm. However, the former Mississippi lawyer has also taken time away from the courtroom to write young adult novels, sports-themed novels, and most recently a series of suspense novels set in a bookstore.

Is It Worth Reading?

The FBI’s hesitation and insistence that there is no evidence is one issue with the book, which is surprising given that Grisham is a trained attorney.

In his legal thrillers, of which he is the master, Grisham never fails to impress. Regarding “The Judge’s List,” it comes highly recommended. The typical corrupt politician seems insignificant in comparison to the sociopath Grisham creates.

Nine of his books have also been made into blockbuster movies. True to form, The Judge’s List has enough turns and turns to make you want to visit the chiropractor afterward.
