Summary
From John Grisham, America's #1 bestselling author, comes the most electrifying novel of the year, a high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of the Sunshine State.

We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity and impartiality are the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the orderly and efficient flow of justice.
But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? It's rare, but it happens.
Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption.
But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout U.S. history.
What's the source of the ill-gotten gains? It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed the casino and is now helping itself to a sizable skim of each month's cash. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way. It's a sweet deal: Everyone is making money.
But now Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with the Board on Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous.
Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Grisham suffers from the paradox that has bedeviled John Steinbeck and Tom Wolfe: he's very popular, and that's probably why nobody likes him. His books are all alike, we hear, and the law his legal thrillers are based on is mighty shaky. Grumps will find more of the same here, as they wonder why they can't put the book down. Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the understaffed, underfunded, and overworked Florida Board on Judicial Conduct, looking into complaints against judges. She's pulled into a case that an informant says involves corruption at a level never before known in this country. The unfolding that follows is appropriately grandiose, featuring a judge who removes all legal roadblocks to a developer's crooked scheme and is made filthy rich in return. Grisham enjoys his crooks as much as his heroes, and his glee in detailing the minutiae of his characters' lives plus his restless, propulsive writing, punctuated with just a dab of irony draws one compulsively to the trumpets-blaring finale. Improbable? Who cares? It's hard not to surrender to storytelling on this level. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: In terms of commercial success and critical disdain (undeserved this time), Grisham is second only to James Patterson.--Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lawyer Lacy Stolz, the heroine of this tense legal thriller from bestseller Grisham (Rogue Lawyer), investigates complaints against judges for the Florida Board on Judicial Misconduct. In her nine years on the job, there has never been any danger in her assignments; the justices are often more incompetent than corrupt. Everything changes when Stolz and a colleague, Hugo Hatch, meet with a disbarred lawyer, who-eager to collect a whistleblower's reward-has evidence of corruption unlike anything they have ever handled. A judge in the pocket of the Coast Mafia has spent years skimming millions from a Native American-owned casino. At least three people have been murdered to cover up the graft, and an innocent man sits on death row, but few are willing to help Stolz and Hatch expose the corruption. The casino keeps the money flowing, and stepping forward could be deadly. A lead brings Stolz and Hatch onto tribal land, where they find themselves caught in a trap. A high-stakes game of gambling, greed, and murder plays out in another page-turner from a master storyteller. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
