It has been over a year since I have read a novel. Maybe I should change that and read the newest book by John Grisham published in January, 2008. I have never read any of Mr. Grisham’s books, but have been told they are well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I understand that he is a great author and having experience as a lawyer, he no doubt knows the ins and outs of the court system. The Appeal by John Grisham tells the story of someone tying to buy the judge when he appeals the lower court ruling. The story line sounds quite interesting.
