#Review John Grisham's Novel "The Confession"

I've been a fan of John Grisham for ions now. I have read most of his books.  When I got the opportunity to review "The Confession" I jumped at it.  I have to say it put me on such a roller coaster ride.  Its hard to read having a 12 week old baby but I would feed her with one hand and had the book in the other hand.

The premise of the book starts out nine years ago the police arrests Donte Drumm for raping and murdering Nicole Yarber, a cheerleader. Drumm is convicted and is days away from being executed.  In comes Travis Boyette, just out of jail at a halfway house.  He has a tumor in his brain that is inoperable.  He confesses to a pastor Keith Schroeder that it was him that killed Nicole Yarber and not Donte Drumm.  This is the start of the suspense of the book. Will they get there in time to stop the execution?  I recommend reading the book so you can find out what happens.  I can't spoil it for you.

I have to say it was thrilling for me to get a chance to review this book.  I recommend everyone to go out and get your copy today.  The book takes you from one suspense to another.  It touches themes on the death penalty, racism, and the system. By system, I mean how corrupt it can be and how high ranking people hide behind it. That is not all his book The Firm is being made into a TV series this fall and The Confession is on  paperback. The Confession has won the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction. John Grisham is on Facebook, and you can" Like" his page Here.

The Litigators is Grisham's latest legal thriller, and it'll be released to the public on October 25, in hardcover and as an eBook. The Litigators is about the partners of Finley & Figg, ambulance chasers, and how their boutique law firm takes on a really big case that seems too good to be true. An extremely popular drug, Krayoxx, has recently come under fire after several patients taking it have suffered heart attacks. A plaintiffs’ firm in Florida is putting together a class action suit against Varrick. All Finley & Figg has to do is find a handful of people who have had heart attacks while taking Krayoxx, convince them to become clients, join the class action, and ride along to fame and fortune.
