Another great book from Grisham; this time seven short stories all set around Ford County, Mississippi. The stories include some crooks, some lawyers, and some just plain foolish folk but all become quite endearing as you read on. A mark of a good story is when you find yourself rooting for one or another of the characters and this book is no exception to that. Many times I found myself wanting someone to get the money or to get away with a crime even. Seldom do I read short stories but because of its author I picked this one up and was not disappointed. Grisham gets a lot of good press but there is a reason for that; he is very good at what he does.
