December Book Club - "The Testament" by John Grisham

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions, a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives.

    Because Troy Phelan's new will names a sole surprise heir to his eleven-billion-dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

    Enter the lawyers. Nate O'Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan's family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate is crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman - pursued by enemies and friends alike - holds a stunning surprise of her own.

    This is a selection by a book club member. John Grisham is usually reliable for a suspenseful mystery, and this will be our first legal thriller. 


    *I've update the time to 1:30pm, as High Hand closes at 3:00pm.

    I really enjoyed this book. I haven't read a Grisham legal mystery since The Pelican Brief in the early 90s & was pleasantly surprised to see how he has grown as a writer.
