Waiting On Wednesday #3

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

The Racketeer by John Grisham

Set For Release On: October 23rd, 2012

Summary From John Grisham’s Website:

Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered.

Judge Raymond Fogletree just became number five.

His body was found in the basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies—Judge Fogletree and his young secretary.

I did not know Judge Fogletree, but I know who killed him, and why.

I am a lawyer, and I am in prison.

It’s a long story.

John Grisham has been one of my favorite writers for years now and I can’t wait to read his next book The Racketeer! I’m so happy that I don’t have to wait much longer (it comes out next week, squee!) to dive into it. The summary sounds pretty good don’t you think? I think Grisham is an author that you have to experience if you haven’t already, so many of his books are must reads!

Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment on what you think about The Racketeer, John Grisham, or your own Waiting On Wednesday post! ^.^

  1. Funny story… I have yet to read a Grisham novel. I know, shame. I’ve wanted to for awhile however, is there a good one to start with?

    • To be honest you can read any of them, they are stand alone books. My personal favorites are The Law Firm and The Broker but they are all good. ^.^

  19. I’m not a huge fan of John Grisham just because he writes law and I’m in Law School so I don’t want to read more law then I have to lol This one does look pretty good though, I might just have to pick it up!

    October 17, 2012 at 5:40 pm

  20. Carmen Brack

    I remember reading The Pelican Brief a couple years back and liking it, but Grisham just doesn’t write the genre I currently enjoy reading… I’m happy the wait is so short for you though 🙂

  46. John Grisham is pretty much an auto-buy, as long as he’s doing his law books. I LOVED The King of Torts and The Runaway Jury. His books are so freaking good. Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW

    October 18, 2012 at 7:13 am

  47. John Grisham is brilliant! I read him a lot growing up (strangely enough lol) – and The Racketeer sounds like something I would really enjoy!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW featuring The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan!

    October 18, 2012 at 8:49 am

  48. I must be the only person on the planet who has not read anything by John Grisham yet. I plan to, most deifintely do, but there are just so many books on my TBR pile that I just can’t pick every book out there. However, I hope you enjoy this once it’s released and luckily Oct 23rd isn’t that far away 🙂

    Thank you for stopping by 🙂

    Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination

    October 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

  49. Nope, Sliri is not the only person never to have read John Grisham. I haven’t either. I’m not sure if he’s my thing exactly. :/ I was recommended one, I think, so I might read that. A Painted House or something like that.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy your pick!

    October 18, 2012 at 10:48 am

  50. Yea I’ve never read John Grisham either…. People say he’s great, he’s just never particularly caught my interest. Thanks for sharing and stopping by mine!
