Review

“A cat-and-mouse caper . . . Grisham is an irresistible writer. His prose is fluent and gorgeous, and he has an ability to end each segment with a terse sentence thatn makes it all but impossible not to turn the page.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

About the Author

John Grisham is the author of more than thirty novels, one work of nonfiction, a collection of stories, and seven novels for young readers.

Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi, law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novel.

Born on February 8, 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to a construction worker and a homemaker, John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. Realizing he didn’t have the right stuff for a pro career, he shifted gears and majored in accounting at Mississippi State University. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade in Southaven, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. In 1983, he was elected to the state House of Representatives and served until 1990.

One day at the DeSoto County courthouse, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl’s father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.

That might have put an end to Grisham’s hobby. However, he had already begun his next book, and it would quickly turn that hobby into a new full-time career—and spark one of publishing’s greatest success stories. The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a hotshot young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared. When he sold the film rights to The Firm to Paramount Pictures for $600,000, Grisham suddenly became a hot property among publishers, and book rights were bought by Doubleday. Spending 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, The Firm became the bestselling novel of 1991.

The successes of The Pelican Brief, which hit number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and The Client, which debuted at number one, confirmed Grisham’s reputation as the master of the legal thriller. Grisham’s success even renewed interest in A Time to Kill, which was republished in hardcover by Doubleday and then in paperback by Dell. This time around, it was a bestseller.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written at least one book a year (his other works are The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, The Chamber, The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury, The Partner, The Street Lawyer, The Testament, The Brethren, A Painted House, Skipping Christmas, The Summons, The King of Torts, Bleachers, The Last Juror, The Broker, Playing for Pizza, The Appeal, The Associate, The Confession, The Litigators, Calico Joe, The Racketeer, Sycamore Row, Gray Mountain, Rogue Lawyer, The Whistler, Camino Island, The Rooster Bar, The Reckoning, and The Guardians) and all of them have become international bestsellers. There are currently more than 350 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 45 languages. Nine of his novels have been turned into films (The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, The Chamber, A Painted House, The Runaway Jury, and Skipping Christmas), as was an original screenplay, The Gingerbread Man. The Innocent Man (October 2006) marked his first foray into non-fiction, and Ford County (November 2009) was his first short story collection. In addition, Grisham has written seven novels for young adults, all in the Theodore Boone series: Kid Lawyer, The Abduction, The Accused, The Activist, The Fugitive, The Scandal, and The Accomplice.

Grisham took time off from writing for several months in 1996 to return, after a five-year hiatus, to the courtroom. He was honoring a commitment made before he had retired from the law to become a full-time writer: representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars. Preparing his case with the same passion and dedication as his books’ protagonists, Grisham successfully argued his clients’ case, earning them a jury award of $683,500—the biggest verdict of his career.

When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes time to charitable causes, including most recently his Rebuild The Coast Fund, which raised 8.8 million dollars for Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He also keeps up with his greatest passion: baseball. The man who dreamed of being a professional baseball player now serves as the local Little League commissioner. The six ballfields he built on his property have played host to over 350 kids on 26 Little League teams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Continuing Characters
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2020
I fell in love with Camino Island and the moment I learned of the return of Bruce and the other characters in Camino Winds, I ordered my copy immediately. Not disappointed. Read the book in two sittings and wished there was more. I am very comfortable when characters return in new adventures.
Hope they will be back and I will be waiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camino Winds is a fantastic summer/holiday read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 23, 2020
Grisham is back with some of his main characters from Camino Island, in this latest instalment set on the tropical island. From the very first sentence, you know that trouble is about to hit this idyllic location, and whilst we're used to arguments, fights and murders gripping us on the first page of a thriller, a catastrophic hurricane was an engrossing alternative.

As the residents decide if to batten down the hatches and ride the storm out; or to flee to mainland, Grisham catches us up with Bruce Cable; the owner of Bay Books, who hasn't changed much, but continues to be a character to envy as he manages to balance his exciting career - consisting of a lot of wine and dine meetings with authors, with the chilled back approach of island life - consisting of a lot of afternoon naps!

Cable decides to stay on the island with a few others and Grisham describes the terrifying and devastating effects that a storm can bring to a small island. I found these pages particularly compelling because not only were they insightfully written, there was a sense of foreboding that tragedy was just around the corner...

As the storm passes and the residents re-group, one of them is missing. Nelson Kerr is lying dead in his garden, was it the storm or was this murder? The police are already stretched beyond belief, an accidental death from the storm would suit them better. And the killer knew this...

As Bruce and his friends investigate further, and recruit some help, it turns out that there was nothing accidental about Nelson's death, but the deeper they dig, the more dangerous it becomes for them.

Both Camino Island and Camino Winds offer Grisham fans something slightly different to his other books, the plots are less legal and more chilled but still give us a complex puzzle to sort and piece together. I find them comparable to watching an episode of Death in Paradise!

The second half of this book took me by surprise, I hadn't guessed the story would evolve in this way and I loved seeing the plan fall into place, it had a classic Grisham-ness to how it unraveled - nobody puts together a plan and lays it out as savvy and efficiently as Grisham!

Camino Winds is a fantastic summer/holiday read; it's clever, it's gripping but it also gives you that tropical location to immerse yourself in!
