I am a great follower of John Grisham’s work but I do not like this book at all. Could not make myself read it all the way to the end.
We will never know how Mr. Grisham spins his tales. He most definitely is among the great playwrights and authors of a all time. Thank you, Mr. Grisham, for providing me a place to escape for many decades.

Book was the worst Grisham has written too date. Finally gave up about a third way thru the book.
this book takes an unilaterally cynical view of the education, judicial and immigration system in the US. DON’T GET ME WRONG: all of these systems are broken. Yes, student debt is a problem, and education is too expensive, but the idea that suicide or crime is the only solution is extreme to say the least. Grisham usually points out the faults in society and provides a creative solution. While entertaining to read at times, this one just leaves the reader sad. No bright star. Pick a different Grisham in my opinion.
Grisham used to be a great writer and I really enjoyed his earlier works. This particular book, frankly, stunk.
Author is getting by on his name. He actually apologizes after the end of the book.
Can’t believe this is the same author who wrote the books I’ve enjoyed so much over the years. The back and forth conversations were forced and did not flow.
Get back to the basics and give us something worth reading please.
