Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2020
I have been a huge John Grisham fan for many years... ever since I first read "A Time to Kill" many years ago.

I am pretty sure I have read every novel Grisham has written and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them... until now.

Frankly, Camino Winds is one of the worst novels I've ever read. The only point of engagement was the recognition of characters from the prequel Camino Island.

It was very amateurish writing. The characters were very two-dimensional. The dialogue was not engaging. The whole story felt like it was being unemotionally told rather than being drawn in.

Worst of all, it was a murder mystery with no mystery!

The entire story plot was revealed in the first three chapters and the rest of the book was just substantiating data for what had already been revealed.

Because of my high esteem for John Grisham, I plugged ahead with reading, thinking there would surely be some redeeming surprise plot twist at the end. But no... it just ended... rather abruptly.

This book was like reading the rough draft of an amateur author's story concept. Not at all the quality of writing I have come to expect from John Grisham.

All in all, it was a total dud in every aspect. Don't waste your time. Grisham has much better novels to offer.
