    Pretty solid story, you can imagine being the young boy at the center of it all. Ending was a little 'sudden' feeling without as deep of an after-effect feeling as some Grisham stories. Narration/recording a little too quiet in some places for listening in the car.

  • Paula Gutierrez

    This was an intriguing story, and the characters were quite believable. I would recommend this selection.

  • Mike Broderick

    Very good book. I watched the movie a few years ago and the book was still great. Reader did a good job.

  • Anonymous

    Great listen, but I felt as though the ending was rushed.
