I'm a huge John Grisham fan but I'm ambivalent about "The Rooster Bar." It started out well with the poignant story of Gordy and his mental illness. From there it took a turn which although I was sympathetic with, I could not condone since Gordy's friends were doing something illegal. Yet, the way Grisham has portrayed Mark, Todd, and Zola one cannot but help rooting them on and wait with bated breath to see if they can out-scam the scammers. Not one of Grisham's best but an interesting read.
