Summary:

They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison.

One was sent up for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. And the third, for a career-ending drunken joyride.

Meeting daily in the prison law library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong.

Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich -- very fast. And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam ... while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt.

A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grips -- and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings. For the Brethren, the timing couldn't be better. Because they've just found the perfect victim...

    Frank Muller is a legend, and his reading of this John Grisham book is no exception. He brings the characters to life, and provides the right pace and tone needed for the book. The plot has some brilliant twists and turns, and gives both blackmail, the CIA and a presidential election a whole new twist. Grisham doesn't have to rely on high-tech gizmos to make his plots work. The story carries the day. Excellent stuff!

    Great story line and another one of John Grisham's page turner. I have now read them all over past 10 years and can't wait for the next.
