Reading Room: The Guardians by John Grisham #BookRecommendation

New addition to the Reading Room is The Guardians by John Grisham. This one is high on my TBR pile, but my mom finished it first, so this is her recommendation. I will add that I've long been a Grisham fan. Gray Mountain has been my favorite, though just about anything you pick up by him is a great read. It often takes her a long time to finish a book, and that she finished this one in record time says a lot. She said it's classic Grisham and well written.


I have read a few comments from some readers who say the book has too much violence. I can't speak to that, but I will say my mom would never read or recommend a book that was too violent. She commented that it's not nearly as bad as what you see on television. Take what you will from that and read at your own discretion.


Read on! I know I'll be engrossed in this one soon.


About the Book

In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. 

Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence. But no one was listening. He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time. Cullen Pos travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.

They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too! I don't rate books on my blog, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed (My mom recommends a few, too!). My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers, and more in between.
