Publisher's Summary

John Grisham delivers high-intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers in the fifth novel in his best-selling Theodore Boone series.

He was supposed to be having fun with his friends, not playing detective and stalking a serial killer.Theodore Boone - teenage lawyer and courtroom hero - is on a class trip, seeing the sights of the capital city. But he hadn't counted on seeing the most wanted man in the history of his hometown, Strattenberg.

Suddenly Theo is caught in the hunt for an accused murderer, alongside the FBI. Theo knows he's getting in deep - and things could become even more dangerous. Because if this case goes back to court, it will be down to him. Will justice finally be done...or will the killer's criminal allies be out for revenge?

Unbelievable story

Very simple story that was not believable, a 13 year old boy would not sit in as a law clerk. Rewards cannot be given to witness in a case. The story was too short and I was waiting for the real story to start. Extremely disappointing book. I will not get the next in series. Don't waste your money

Riveting, have listened to it multiple times.

Pretty good. My nephew says Theo is a annoying twerp. I liked it though and the reading was good. My nephew says shut up.

Perfect

Perfect addition to the series. What more could we ask for than Theo being thrown into a major trial! Amazing book
