Editorial Reviews

Review

“Should you answer this summons? You bet.”—New Orleans Times-Picayune

“Grisham has grown more comfortable with his voice while expanding its range. . . . The Summons is more than a . . . return to form; it marks out the rich literary territory Grisham has begun to occupy.”—Los Angeles Times

“A master of the legal suspense thriller.”—Richmond-Times Dispatch
 
“A pleasure to read . . . a good yarn.”—The Washington Post

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth revisiting
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 4, 2020
When we moved house, management took the opportunity to relieve us of most of my paperback collection.....

Fortunately, with the aid of my Kindle, I am now able to revisit some of the better novels - and that definitely includes a number of books by John Grisham. "The Summons" is one if my favourites, well written and with an interesting twist in the tail.

Very enjoyable and highly recommended.
