REVIEW: The Judge’s List

Grisham is back in his sweet spot with The Judge’s List, this novel is a cat and mouse game as the judicial commission tries to investigate a judge who may be a serial killer. We’ve met Lacy before in The Whistler and she’s now been dragged into another criminal case. She is contacted by a woman whose father was murdered decades ago and she is convinced the killer is a former student of his with a grudge. In fact, she thinks he’s acted on lots of grudges and left several bodies in his wake.

Grisham departs slightly from a legal procedural but provides us with a detailed mystery that has several twists and turns. The path the accuser has taken to unravel the judge’s complex criminal history is so impressive even the FBI is wow-ed in this one. You’ll be intrigued by the extent the judge takes to cover his tracks, shocked by the shallow grudges and certainly surprised by the ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Doubleday for a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.


This one is out tomorrow, any upcoming releases that you’re excited about?
