This is clearly an example of the author phoning it in. Reads like a high school essay, C+ at best. I had a hard time believing he actually wrote this (a ghost writer perhaps). Plot: the scammed becomes the scammee; two wrongs making a right? I realize this is fiction, but there has to be a better and more entertaining way of addressing the high costs of tuition and undocumented immigrants. I could go off on a rant but I won't. Grisham's latest is so disappointing and comes off as being liberal rot-gut. Don't waste your time; there are so many good books out there and this one isn't one of them!
