Remember that? John Grisham? A Time to Kill?
Damn that was a cold-blooded line. Samuel Jackson REALLY captured it. That whole book was pretty good. Had me mad and almost crying at the same time.
Or what about The Runaway Jury? About the guy who's been going around trying to get on the juries for these huge court cases against the cigarette manufacturers? He KNOWS the manufacturers are tainting the jury, so he starts manipulating the jury himself?
The Firm? That one STILL has me wary of the corporate machine. Creepy.
The King of Torts - after I read that one I was an authority on class action suits - at least until I married an attorney and by extension, gained a whole slew of lawyer-friends.
All these legal thrillers, right? What about the others? The non-legal thrillers?
A Painted House - What?
Bleachers - Apparently, it's about football. I'm not pressed.
I was walking through Kroger the other day, and I saw his latest - Playing for Pizza. Another football book. A QB doesn't hack it in the NFL, and ends up moving to Italy to play for a team that just wants "An NFL QB". Snore.
Come on, John. Stick to the legal thrillers. Better yet, don't. I'm don't even care anymore. I'm not even sure why I'm writing this. Bah humbug.
Know What I'm Sayin'?? No? I don't care. That one line IS cold-blooded, though.
