The Whistler Synopsis

Myers is representing a whistle blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead. Since the casino was built, the judge has made several fortunes off undeclared winnings. She owns property around the world, hires private jets to take her where she wishes, and her secret vaults are overflowing with rare books, art and jewels.No one has a clue what she's been doing - until now.Under Florida law, those who help the state recover illegally acquired assets stand to gain a large percentage of them. Myers and his whistle blower friend could make millions. But first they need Lacy to start an investigation. Is she ready to pit herself against the most corrupt judge in American history, a judge whose associates think nothing of murder?

The Whistler Press Reviews

'The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett

'John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers' Telegraph

'Leaves one eager for more' Spectator

'No one does it better than Grisham' Daily Telegraph

'A master storyteller' Huffington Post

'A fascinating look at judicial corruption - an entirely convincing story and one of Grisham's best.' Washington Post

'It may seem odd to describe a jigsaw as nail-biting, but that is precisely what John Grisham delivers.' Daily Mail

'[T]his is not a story about a triumph or a miscarriage of courtroom justice. It's the more devious, surprising story of a smart man who gets even smarter once he spends five years honing his skills as a jailhouse lawyer -- and then expertly concocts an ingenious revenge scheme... Mr. Grisham writes with rekindled vigor here.' New York Times
