Overview

Theodore Boone returns in this fifth adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham, master of the modern legal thriller

Theo Boone thought the danger had passed, but he's about to face off against an old adversary: accused murderer and fugitive Pete Duffy.  On a field trip to Washington, DC, Theo spots a familiar face on the Metro: Duffy, who jumped bail and was never seen again.  Theo's quick thinking helps bring Duffy back to Strattenburg to stand trial. But now that Duffy knows who he is, Theo is in greater danger than he's ever been in before. Even when everything is on the line, Theodore Boone will stop at nothing to make sure a killer is brought to justice.

John Grisham really outdid himself. This book could not have been better. The suspense and action really kept me on my toes.

I love books that have a kid around my age doing what os supposed to be the adults job. Also is there anyone out there that wants to chat?

This fifth addition to the Theodore Boone series was a good read for all ages, but just as all series seem to do, the story line is weaker than the preceding books.

Theodore Boone & his Parents (Woods & Marcella) & his Uncle Ike (Boone) are all compelling characters, which Grisham weaves together into an interesting story--all leading to an intense courtroom drama.

This is the first Grisham story I couldn't finish. To portray a 13 year old kid as a hero in helping to capture and apprehend a criminal is ridiculous in this post Hardy Boys era. Definitely not for adult readers who are generally Grisham fans.
