Publisher Description

***THE SUNDAY TIMES THRILLER OF THE MONTH***

'Besides the usual Grisham virtues of an arresting idea, polished plotting and vivid social snapshots, what's impressive here is his willingness to take on fresh challenges' THE SUNDAY TIMES

Nonstop suspense from the Sunday Times bestselling author: Investigator Lacy Stoltz follows the trail of a serial killer, and closes in on a shocking suspect - a sitting judge.

In The Whistler, Lacy Stoltz investigated a corrupt judge who was taking millions in bribes from a crime syndicate. She put the criminals away, but only after being attacked and nearly killed. Three years later, and approaching forty, she is tired of her work for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct and ready for a change.

Then she meets a mysterious woman who is so frightened she uses a number of aliases. Jeri Crosby's father was murdered twenty years earlier in a case that remains unsolved and that has grown stone cold. But Jeri has a suspect whom she has become obsessed with and has stalked for two decades. Along the way, she has discovered other victims.

Suspicions are easy enough, but proof seems impossible. The man is brilliant, patient, and always one step ahead of law enforcement. He is the most cunning of all serial killers. He knows forensics, police procedure, and most important: he knows the law.

He is a judge, in Florida - under Lacy's jurisdiction.

He has a list, with the names of his victims and targets, all unsuspecting people unlucky enough to have crossed his path and wronged him in some way. How can Lacy pursue him, without becoming the next name on his list?

The Judge's List is by any measure John Grisham's most surprising, chilling novel yet.

Nobody is safe

A journey in search of a serial killer who for years nobody has managed to catch. An itinerary full of details of the judicial system which of course isn’t the same everywhere in the States. This story progresses like a puzzle where characters are challenged when least expected. The twists certainly don’t disappoint.

A good read

It’s nice to find an author and a book that doesn’t says book 2 will be along soon, so I won’t spill all the beans in this book. This book had a beginning, a middle & and end. Yes book 2 could come along about the people, but the crime got solved. 4/5 from me, but it could get a bit technical & longwinded for others.

One of his best

The Judges List is a good read - just plausible enough for a Grisham fan. Original serial killer plot with a few clever twists and only enough violence to keep the pages turning. I assume there will be a third adventure for this well drawn pair.
