Book Review: The Broker
The Broker by John Grisham
I admit, I haven't read any Grisham novels since the 1990s (and according to the majority of my patrons, I haven't missed much), but I knew this was set primarily in Italy and thought I would give it a go.
Hrm. While it's a nice tour of Bologna, the "chase" and the premise left me cold. Grisham spent more time exploring the ins and outs of Italian culture and eluding to a romance than working out the details of how our title characters ended up there in the first place! The ending left me cold, and I was actually grateful this only took a day to read - I can move on to other novels instead!
If you want to read a good lawyer-y suspense novel, stick with Grisham's early work.
