The Confession by John Grisham

Post  Bookworm on Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:25 pm

There are thousands of stories about victims who have confessed under duress. This one is typical, and has every type of contrivance imaginable to enhance the tale: a sleep-deprived, malleable victim who just wants the interrogation to be over, an overly aggressive cop seeking to make a name for himself, a compliant judge who is fooling around with the district attorney, two radio talk show hosts on opposite sides of the murder, and a bevy of news reporters looking for the big break.
The redneck state of Texas adds to the convenience, as do hoards of bible-thumping zealots. Come on, Grisham, give us a break. Even though we all know the black accused is not-guilty, unlike O J Simpson, we can't see the emergence of a glove that doesn't fit.
Only if you are enthralled with artificial murder mysteries can you afford to stay with this one.
