Not One of Grisham's Best

Normally, I?m a big John Grisham fan. His books are crisp, well-written and crackle with essential moral dilemmas. In The Brethren, however, there is no right or wrong, and subsequently no hero, flawed or otherwise, to root for. All the characters are odious?the blackmailers, the politician, the lawyer, and the spook are all corrupted beyond redemption. Even worse, these multiple antagonists are all rewarded in varying degrees for their greed.

This is Mr. Grisham at his most cynical and I?m afraid I can?t recommend it.
