After “Bleachers” sucked the big one, I was a bit concerned about John Grisham. However, “The Last Juror” totally restored my faith that JG is not going to be the next Danielle Steel after all.
“Juror” is a completely engrossing story set in late 1960s Mississippi and follows a young man who buys the local paper and spends the next 20 years heavily involved with small town life – the pitfalls of racism, the horror of a murder, the fear that someone is seeking revenge for a prison term. This was no Danielle Steel book. It was Grisham at his best.
