Publisher Description

In this instant #1 New York Times bestseller, John Grisham delivers a classic legal thriller—with a twist.

“Terrific…affecting…Grisham has done it again.”—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
 
“A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes.”—Associated Press

In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. 

Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence.  But no one was listening.  He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time.  Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.

They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

The Guardians The Law and Lawers

By scapes101
I found it hard to put this book down. As usual the details, the details, the details and the anticipation keeps me reading.

Read every book John Grisham has written and kept them all for future rereads.

Engaging and Eye-opening

Like many of the other reviewers, I have read every Grisham novel. The Guardians is another classic. Detailed and educating, this based-on-a-true-story book takes us out of our comfortable self focused lives and helps us to realize that there are real victims who are wasting away in prisons because of corrupt people. It should anger us. Hats off to John Grisham for disclosing this travesty.

Clever, magnetic character’s, lost sleep trying to read it all.

Fantastic read with all the elements of humanity at its worst and very best. The sleuthy scenes are magical and you can’t get enough. This was a prize to read.
