Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Investigator Lacy Stoltz follows the trail of a serial killer, and closes in on a shocking suspect—a sitting judge—in “one of the best crime reads of the year.... Bristling with high-tech detail and shivering with suspense.... Worth staying up all night to finish” (Wall Street Journal).
    
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.

Bayloc ,

Good story but

The overall story line was pretty good. However when the judge pulled out hydrochloride acid tablets at the end it soured for me. Hydrochloride acid is a liquid, there is no such thing as tablets. How he would get a bottle into the resort to accomplish the last step in his obfuscation of his career is unknown

Judges List

Too long and drawn out….poor ending

Yer Mom's "Friend" ,

Blooper

In the first book Gunther is a recovered addict who has been sober for years, now in the second book he has a “usual bottle of wine” at lunch. No mention at all about a backslide but his sobriety and addiction were a big part of his character in the first book I’m surprised Grisham or his editors didn’t catch that flub

Lots of small inconsistencies in his character development this one was clearly lazy in the rush to publish a follow up. Not nearly as good as the first one
