The Reckoning by John Grisham

The Reckoning

The Reckoning is a departure from Grisham’s usual legal thrillers. The story is told in three parts. 1. A premeditated crime in rural Mississippi. 2. The Bataan death march (which stands by itself, and doesn’t really drive the story). 3. The children try to piece together their lives after their father returns from WW-II and shatters it.
The novel is very dark, but I enjoyed reading it. I didn’t mind the departure(s).

B-/B+ (for the WW-II section)
