#1 NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER • “The perfect crime scene ... in the type of wild but smart caper that Grisham’s readers love.”—Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing
The master of the legal thriller sweeps you away to paradise for a little sun, sand, mystery, and mayhem. With Camino Winds, America’s favorite storyteller offers the perfect escape. Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen—even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime...
Just as Bruce Cable’s Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island. Florida’s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm.
The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce’s and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson’s injuries suggests that the storm wasn’t the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head.
Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson’s novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson’s computer is the manuscript of his new novel. Could the key to the case be right there—in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson’s plot twists—and far more dangerous. 
Camino Winds is an irresistible romp and a perfectly thrilling beach read—# 1 bestselling author John Grisham at his beguiling best.

Michael Beck brings these stories to life with his wonderful narration. No matter the plot, he draws the listener in and never drags them along. Can never imagine a new Grisham without his Southern sound.

Loved this one. The only complaint I have is that it was too short. The narrator was fabulous and brought the southern gentleman sound to life. I could picture each character in my mind. I’m ready for the next “ Camino Island “ adventure with Bruce and the gang.

It was a good book. I agree with others of being a little slow and predictable but I was not disappointed I read it. I liked getting to know the people in the story.

First. I love John Grisham’s writing. I’ve read a lot of his books and enjoy them. I enjoyed this. But. It was predictable. Follows the same sequencing and style as many of his others. I was overall disappointed but still not upset I spent the 8 hrs listening. If that makes sense. As for the narrator. Michael Beck is superb. I love his style, pace and characterizations. He’s excellent.

The book was ok. I wouldn’t recommend it. Very slow moving and if I had to some it up in one word: boring. I was really hoping for more.

The post story was much better then listening about the crowd on Camino. The book started to roll as it started to end. Michael Beck tried, but chapters 1-15 were sleepers.

The narration and main character carried the book.

Unimaginable. Never couldbelueve that the witer of The Client, The Rainmaker, A Time to Kill, The Firm, The Pelican Brief, Runaway Jury, and so many others wrote this. A look into nursing home brutality and or drug price fixing is a worthy theme. To butcher it with a half bait story and a not so likable cast is simpl. Uimaginable.

Seriously boring book with no suspense and the ending clearly spelled out a third of the way into the book. Good narrator. Grisham phoned this one in.

Very little suspense. I felt like I was listening to a documentary.

The health care fraud plot line is so weak it really detracts from the book; Grisham is at his best during the storm and its aftermath, but really bogs down in the medical plot twists. I just wanted to get back to the book store with a glass of wine, back to the lovely cottage with the fetching love interest, and so on.

A portion of the plot was a copy of a episode of law and order SVU. Very disappointing.
