Review:

With her sparkling voice and superb acting ability, Blair Brown gives an impressive reading of this John Grisham blockbuster. The story hinges on a young boy who gets an unwanted earful of murder and politics--and dangerous secrets about both--from a conscience-stricken mob lawyer bent on suicide. "I can tell you where the body is... the most notorious undiscovered corpse of our time". Just the kind of information most children don't need, especially when the snakeskin-wearing hit man finds out what he knows. Aside from musical cues scattered as superfluously as laugh tracks on a sitcom, the production quality is stellar, preserving the crispness of Blair's voice and the nuances of her excellent interpretation. --George Laney, Amazon.com

Review:

"Hard to put down" (Daily Telegraph)

"Take it from me, this man Grisham spins a damned good yarn and is going to be around for a long, long time" (Time Out)

"It's gripping enough to be best read in daylight" (Sunday Express)
