Il solito straordinario Grisham. Ambientato in una prigione, con la giusta ironia.. Fantastico,
Yep! Grisham at his best. Imagine! 3 judges in a federal prison...
There are some authors that simply have the gift of narratives: John Grisham is among them.
It's been a long time since I last read one of his novels, and I almost forgot how gripping they are. But after the first chapters I simply couldn't stop reading this book.
This time the action moves from Law Courts to politics power rooms, there's no such an hero as the usual young lawyer fighting for the rights of someone (on the contrary, all the lawmen are negative characters) and there is not a central character (Aaron Lake is just a ill-wit puppet in the hands of CIA).
Unlikely as it may be (is CIA really capable of monouvering a Presidential election? Threee convicted judges can run a mail scam so smoothly?) it is great enterteinment.
Three judges, in prison run a scam in which they place an ad in a gay magazine and then blackmail the people who respond. When one response comes from a politician running for president, they have their ultimate 'mark'.
