***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.

NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM
JG doesn’t care anymore
Hugely disappointing after much anticipation. The Camino books and now this! Convinced JG is just writing for the sake of writing nowadays. He’s solidly established, figures he can get away with anything and given his huge fan base, he likely will. I’ve read every book of JG and I’m currently, struggling to finish this one. Terrible and predictable plot. A, supposedly, intelligent person stalking a killer for 20 years, going through convoluted paths to sic the authorities onto him…and then indulging in taunting him, when so close to success? And don’t get me started on the character development. I’ve been suspecting that JG has lost context on keeping up with the times and how us ordinary folk live. This book confirms it. The cliched profiling of Lacy, makes me cringe.
Doubt I’ll make it through the book.
