A breezy return to Camino Island with a chilling insight into a nursing home abuse issue. This is a new angle for Grisham and I appreciate the varied plots of his books. "The Guardians" was heavy on the courtroom drama end. This one begins with a murder for hire. I loved the theories of wannabe novelist Nick and the contributions he made to moving the investigation along. The local and state police don't come out looking too bright and shiny, unfortunately. There are interesting twists and turns with out friends from the first Camino Island novel with plenty of possibilities for a third down the road. I am giving this one an amazing rating for Grisham's creativity and ability to make me look over my shoulder when running errands. I will also be more vigilant should I need to look for a nursing home for a loved one in the future.
