*****= An all-time favorite
by John Grisham
Reviewed February 11, 2002.
Doubleday, 2002. 341 pages. Available at Sembach Library (F GRI).
I read a couple of John Grisham books a few years ago and wasn’t impressed, so I’m not sure why I decided to grab the new John Grisham book before anyone had it on hold. I was glad I did. The story was interesting and kept me reading until far too late at night.
Ray Atlee receives a summons from his father, known to all as the Judge. When Mr. Atlee shows up at the family home on the appointed Sunday at 5:00, he finds his father lying dead on the sofa--and three million dollars in hundred dollar bills stacked neatly in boxes in the cupboard.
Where did the money come from? Should he include it as part of the estate and let the government get half the money? Did anyone else know of its existence?
It turns out that three million dollars in cash can be something of a burden. What follows is interesting, sometimes humorous and often tense. A fun book to read, and it makes you think about money and what it is truly worth.
