One of the Christmas gifts I received from my kids this year was a gift card to get some ebooks. I immediately snagged John Grisham’s new book, The Racketeer, and Andy Stanley’s latest, Deep & Wide. I finished Grisham’s book and have started Stanley’s.
I always enjoy John Grisham’s books and enjoyed The Racketeer. He has a way of weaving together a story that draws you in and keeps you wondering what is happening next.
The backdrop of this book is a lawyer, Malcolm Bannister, who ends up in jail because he became associated with the wrong people and the murder of a federal judge. Bannister claims to have information on who murdered the judge and why he did it. The FBI has no leads and begin a conversation with Bannister that leads to a series of twists and turns.
If you are interested in seeing how it all pans out, grab a copy of The Racketeer. Grisham keeps you guessing until the end wondering who is guilty and who really knows the truth. He shows why he is one of today’s popular authors.
