Amazon.com Audiobook Review
With her sparkling voice and superb acting ability, Blair Brown gives an impressive reading of this John Grisham blockbuster. The story hinges on a young boy who gets an unwanted earful of murder, politics--and dangerous secrets about both--from a conscience-stricken mob lawyer bent on suicide. "I can tell you where the body is... the most notorious undiscovered corpse of our time." Just the kind of information most children don't need, especially when the snakeskin-wearing hit man finds out... Audio Cassette edition.

But the bad guys aren't going to kill the kid to keep him quiet - only if he talks (at which point killing him doesn't do any good???) The premise is completely backwards. The kid's lawyer is such a moron, she can't figure out that if the kid's testimony is preserved through deposition, there's no point in the bad guys killing him... but that as long as the kid is the only one with the information, killing the kid is a viable alternative. The whole book is all about the "struggle" to decide what to do. A logical and more entertaining approach to the plot would have been: Page 1: Kids learns secret. Page 2: Kid testifies to facts under oath. Page 3: THE END ...Which only tells you how horribly bad this book is. Such a HUGE logical flaw, should have sent the author in search of another plot, but instead he blunders through an homage to bad writing, apparently unaware such gross inconsistencies reduce a book to mere wasted paper. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! Do NOT waste your time or your money. --This text refers to the Paperback edition
