Description
"Riveting...finely drawn... The Whistler centers on an elaborate conspiracy involving an Indian reservation, an organized crime syndicate and a crooked judge skimming a small fortune from the tribal casino's monthly haul." --The New York Times Book Review "A main character who's a seriously appealing woman...a whistle-blower who secretly calls attention to corruption...a strong and frightening sense of place...Grisham's on his game." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times "A fascinating look at judicial corruption...an entirely convincing story and one of Grisham's best. I can't think of another major American novelist since Sinclair Lewis who has so effectively targeted social and political ills in our society. In Grisham's case, it is time at least to recognize that at his best he is not simply the author of entertaining legal thrillers but an important novelistic critic of our society. In more than 30 novels, he has often used his exceptional storytelling skills to take a hard look at injustice and corruption in the legal world and in our society as a whole." --Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post "Grisham's latest involves the rich and powerful and an abuse of the justice system. Grisham novels are crowd-pleasers because he knows how to satisfy readers who want to see injustice crushed, and justice truly prevails for those who cannot buy influence." -- Associated Press "Grisham has become an institution. For more than 25 years now he's been our guide to the byways and backwaters of our legal system, superb in particular at ferreting out its vulnerabilities and dramatizing their abuse in gripping style. He excels at describing injustice and corruption. Grisham's legal knowledge is impressive, and his ability to convey it unparalleled in popular fiction." -- USA Today
