Summary
"In American icon John Grisham's new novel, Camino Winds , an odd assortment of mystery and crime authors, some of them felons themselves, discover one of their colleagues has been murdered during the fury of a massive hurricane--the perfect crime scene. Since officials are preoccupied with the aftermath of the storm, the authors set out to solve the mystery themselves, in the type of wild but smart caper that Grisham's readers love." --Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

John Grisham, #1 bestselling author and master of the legal thriller, sweeps you away to paradise for a little sun, sand, mystery, and mayhem.

With Camino Winds , America's favorite storyteller offers the perfect escape.

Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen--even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime . . .

Just as Bruce Cable's Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island. Florida's governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm.

The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce's and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson's injuries suggests that the storm wasn't the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head.

Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson's novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson's computer is the manuscript of his new novel. Could the key to the case be right there--in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson's plot twists--and far more dangerous.

Camino Winds is an irresistible romp and a perfectly thrilling beach read--# 1 bestselling author John Grisham at his beguiling best.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Returning to the setting of Grisham's Camino Island (2017), Bruce Cable is still running his bookstore, but, frankly, he's worried: a hurricane is bearing down on the island, promising to bring with it widespread destruction. Which it does, but it also brings something else: murder. In the middle of the worst storm to hit the island in years, a local writer, Nelson Kerr, is killed. The police have a lot on their plate in the aftermath of the storm, and they seem content to put this particular problem on the back burner, so Bruce decides to solve the mystery himself. The problem is, he has few clues and even fewer potential suspects. Camino Island was a delightful, rather laid-back small-town mystery involving writers and their craft. Here the focus remains the same--Bruce soon learns that Kerr's murder probably had something to do with the writer's work in progress, possibly the fact that the new novel's plot may have strong links to real-life wrongdoing. Readers who enjoyed the previous novel's character and island ambience will been equally taken with this one. A fine sequel."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The murder of popular thriller writer Nelson Kerr during a hurricane drives bestseller Grisham's exciting follow-up to 2017's Camino Island. In the hurricane's aftermath, the Camino Island police are too preoccupied to handle the case competently, so Nelson's bookseller friend, Bruce Cable, the endearing though roguish leader of the Florida resort island's literary society, and his pals--ex-con crime writer J. Andrew Cobb and bookstore intern Nick Sutton--obtain permission from Nelson's relatives to investigate. The discovery of Nelson's unpublished final novel, concerning Medicare fraud, conceivably holds the key to his death. Believing the manuscript is fact posing as fiction, Bruce retains the services of a dodgy security firm to infiltrate nursing homes. This effort leads to more murders, a cover-up, and a massive FBI operation to bring the book's villains to justice. Grisham peoples the intriguing, elaborate plot with a winsome ensemble of distinguished authors and booklovers. Readers will hope to return soon to this appealing vacation hot spot. Agent: David Gernert, the Gernert Company. (Apr.)"
