A lutheran minister listens to an apparently terminally ill guy confess to the rape and murder of a high school student in Texas. An innocent man would soon be executed for this murder. Thus begins John Grisham's latest suspenseful book. Very enjoyable. (blogged out of order)
Disappointing! A chase story involving a couple of bad people and other people running around and trying to catch them while engaging in kinky activities involving money, airplanes, and sex. I loved this author's earlier books but definitely not the recent ones.

Ron is a successful rich white man, an art dealer in Fort Worth, Texas, and Denver is a Black homeless man, enslaved in the tenant farmer system of the South a generation ago. These two lives came together in a wondrous way to become a deep friendship based on strong faith and the love and guidance of Deborah, Ron's wife. Well written and inspirational. I especially liked how the voices of Ron and Denver came out in alternating chapters.
