#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • “The Racketeer is guilty of only one thing: keeping us engaged until the very last page.”—USA Today • In the history of the United States, only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.

His body is found in his remote lakeside cabin. There is no sign of forced entry or struggle. Just two dead bodies: Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. And one large, state-of-the-art, extremely secure safe, opened and emptied.

Who is the Racketeer? And what does he have to do with the judge’s untimely demise? His name, for the moment, is Malcolm Bannister. Job status? Former attorney. Current residence? The Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland.

On paper, Malcolm’s situation isn’t looking too good these days, but he’s got an ace up his sleeve. He knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and he knows why. The FBI would love to know. And Malcolm Bannister would love to tell them. But everything has a price—especially information as explosive as the sequence of events that led to Judge Fawcett’s death. And the Racketeer wasn’t born yesterday.

Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

The Racketeer was full of twists and turns. Although I guessed the final twist, I stayed interested. It required a bit of a stretch to accept the stunts that are pulled could actually be accomplished. But that's why it's fiction ...

The story is good but the last 2/3 hours could have been only a few chapters. The narrator making different accents and voices wasn’t great either

Great story, a little less intricate than most Grisham novels but I may be spoiled after "The Reconing

Great story; fine presentation. Story line reminds me of Breaking Bad and how life circumstances can change a person's perspective.

Not the best Grishom book. His earlier books were a lot better.
