John Grisham
The Reckoning | Hodder

“On a cold morning in Oct­­­­o­­ber of 1946, Pete Banning awoke before sunrise and had no thoughts of going back to sleep.” So starts Gri­­­­­s­­ham’s latest, a return to Cla­n­­­­­ton, Mississippi. Banning, a war hero, rich farmer, well-loved nei­­gh­­bour and family-man, is con­­­­­­te­m­­­plating murder. His only, ine­­­xplicable reaction to his crime: “I've nothing to say.” If you like noir unfolding like sticky syrup, go for this.
