John Grisham The Racketeer

The Racketeer by John Grisham is a #1 New York Times Best Seller.


The Racketeer by John Grisham was an excellent crime novel that will keep you turning pages from beginning to end. Like the typical Grisham legal novel, this page turner is filled with  plenty of interesting characters and has no shortage of unexpected plot twists.

In the history of the United States, only four actively serving federal judges have ever been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become the fifth one to be killed. His body is found in his remote lakeside cabin. There is no sign of forced entry or struggle. The only think the police find is two dead bodies: Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. And one large, state-of-the-art, extremely secure safe, which had been opened and emptied of its valuable contents.

The main character in The Racketeer is Malcolm Bannister. Malcolm, a former attorney, is in prison for a crime that he says he didn’t commit. Malcolm claims that he knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and why. But that man, Malcolm Bannister, is currently residing in the Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. Though serving time, Malcolm has an ace up his sleeve. He has information the Federal Bureau of Investigation would love to know. Malcolm would love to tell them. But everything has a price—and the man known as the Racketeer wasn’t born yesterday.

If you’re into reading legal thrillers, nobody does it better than the master. This book delivers a series of twists that you’ll never see coming.
