Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A delightfully lighthearted caper . . . [a] fast-moving, entertaining tale.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist.
        
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures.
     
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets.

But soon Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise—as only John Grisham can deliver it.

    Weakest ending imaginable! I have read many Grisham books before but they were completely riveting, this was more beach trash than a law drama. I liked the characters and the plot but the ending just was awful. Four stars for what could be and a nod to a great author!
  • Easy read

    Not a bad book at all. Enjoyed reading it. Got a little dry in the middle but overall solid book. Would recommend

    J.G.. writes for old and insecure white men. Camino Winds is shallow. The characters are cheesy and predictable. The story is one long eye roll.
  • Just Terrible

    Don’t read this trash that he probably wrote in one afternoon with a beer in hand. Much too chatty, story really flat and far fetched, didn’t get a little interesting until the last few chapters. Mr Grisham lost it. He’s written manny far better then this one.

    Not really up to club standards. Illogical plots. Boring. Struggled through half and gave up.
  • He phoned this one in
