Standard Grisham fare: lawyers, the American South, vast sums of money, yachts, bugging, the lot. In this instance somebody has died, and then disappeared with ninety million. Yes, in that order. The book consists of getting him back from the underworld (to which, of course, he has not gone) and then getting him out of all the trouble he's got himself into.

I didn't really get into this, to be honest, and the only reason I finished it was that I was putting off going shopping. I failed to have much sympathy for the central character, and the twist at the end somehow managed to be both predictable and unconvincing.
