The Judge's List John Grisham read online review & book description:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • Investigator Lacy Stoltz follows the trail of a serial killer, and closes in on a shocking suspect—a sitting judge—in “one of the best crime reads of the year.… Bristling with high-tech detail and shivering with suspense…. Worth staying up all night to finish” (Wall Street Journal).
    
In The Whistler, Lacy Stoltz investigated a corrupt judge who was taking millions in bribes from a crime syndicate. She put the criminals away, but only after being attacked and nearly killed. Three years later, and approaching forty, she is tired of her work for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct and ready for a change.

Then she meets a mysterious woman who is so frightened she uses a number of aliases. Jeri Crosby’s father was murdered twenty years earlier in a case that remains unsolved and that has grown stone cold. But Jeri has a suspect whom she has become obsessed with and has stalked for two decades. Along the way, she has discovered other victims.

Suspicions are easy enough, but proof seems impossible. The man is brilliant, patient, and always one step ahead of law enforcement. He is the most cunning of all serial killers. He knows forensics, police procedure, and most important: he knows the law.

He is a judge, in Florida—under Lacy’s jurisdiction.

He has a list, with the names of his victims and targets, all unsuspecting people unlucky enough to have crossed his path and wronged him in some way. How can Lacy pursue him, without becoming the next name on his list?

The Judge’s List is by any measure John Grisham’s most surprising, chilling novel yet.

  • Unsatisfactory Ending

    As usual, Grisham’s storytelling and ability to educate the reader is first-rate, but I wasn’t satisfied with the ending. I can’t abide someone not being held accountable for consciously doing something wrong, especially when they do it repeatedly.

    Like all Grisham books, I learned something. Good pace of action. Enough suspense to make it hard to put the book down. Not your typical serial killer profile which was a relief. Made me think about network (lack of) security.
  • Not bad

    Don’t want to ruin the ending for future readers of this book, but the ending could have been better for the good guys. Always love reading Grisham’s books.

    I’ve been reading Grisham for years. I think he’s turned into a pulp author. The Firm, A Time to Kill are of a quality that has passed him by. This book was ok and I finished it but it wasn’t great.
