I think Grisham phoned this one in.

I do not really agree with the readers who rated this book as "horrible"... It may be not one of his best and a little slow, but when you stick though it it is still an OK story. As far as I am concerned it is still better that some of…

2/2 of story nothing happens other than description of hurricane, humidity and then the aftermath of hurricane it drones on and on. Nelson a best selling author is murdered ....who done it and why....not exciting

Horrible book! I can't believe that John Grisham wrote this. Was he ill or is he completely burned out? The shallow characters, slow plot and mundane, repetitive dialogue were enough to make me put the book down. I wasn't willing to waste…

Its as though this is two different books. The first part describing the hurricane is good, detailed. Then in the middle he describes a sniper killing and the book switches almost to outline form. To make sense of the murder during the…

This is a follow up to Camino Island which I enjoyed. This one left me disappointed.

My first Grisham and it was worth finally reading one of his.

Imagine being in a hurricane, with objects flying all over the place, and destruction everywhere. Now imagine you are a writer in the hurricane and your filing cabinet with all your plots and ideas of plots, disparate characters and…

Boring...Boring...Boring Never thought I'd say that about a Grisham book. After finishing reading, it was difficult to remember the ending much less the rambling plot. Actually made me wonder if anyone edited this book.

This was one of the worst books I have ever forced myself to finish.

BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A total waste of time. Only made it through about a third of the way through hoping it would improve. Gave up as it got even more boring.

So predictable and formulaic. Nothing great about it.

This is not up to par for Grisham. The descriptions of the hurricane were great, but the characters and plot are flat. Overall, this book lacks tension. I liked Camino Island, but this one is a dud. Didn't finish.

Not typical Grisham but I enjoyed it. The possibilities it mentions are chilling and something we cannot afford.

Not very good. There's no clear plot. He's all over the place. You wait for a climax, but there isn't one. There are lots of references to his previous novel with this same main character - as though pimping that book. A hurricane,…

I prefer Grisham's legal thrillers better than these murder mystery type stories that he has been doing, but it's still Grisham and it was still pretty good.

Enjoyable quick read with enough twists to keep you interested.

A breezy return to Camino Island with a chilling insight into a nursing home abuse issue. This is a new angle for Grisham and I appreciate the varied plots of his books. "The Guardians" was heavy on the courtroom drama end. This one begins…

Perhaps Grisham is coasting a bit (and has done so in the past), but still an entertaining read, with hints of the righteous indignation due to an industry's corruption.

Another entertaining book from Grisham The same cast of characters from the first Camino Island. Enjoyed the book a quick read.

Grisham always makes for an interesting read. Maybe not his finest but definitely entertaining with enough twists to keep you on your toes.

All Interesting comments, mine will be slightly different. Wouldn't want to be repetitious. As others have noted, it is a quick read. My take for why it was such a quick read, was because of so many returning characters from Camino…

This was a very quick read but not a great read. I think John Grisham is going the way of James Patterson. They are churning out books with very little depth. At least John Grisham isn’t co-authoring with his writing. The plot is very…

Can anybody tell me if this is any better than the first? I mean, in that one, if the main character had done nothing the outcome wouldn't have been changed one bit. It's like nothing mattered.
