#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.

Praise for Camino Island

“A happy lark [that] provides the pleasure of a leisurely jaunt periodically jolted into high gear, just for the fun and speed of it.”The New York Times Book Review

“Sheer catnip . . . [Grisham] reveals an amiable, sardonic edge here that makes Camino Island a most agreeable summer destination.”USA Today

“Fans will thrill with the classic chase and satisfying ending; and book lovers will wallow in ecstasy.”The Florida Times-Union


  • Builds up well, but disappoints at the end

    By Rooney !!!!!!
    The story is built up quite well. Makes you think there will be a surprising end. But in the end, leaves you wanting for more.
  • Painfully slow

    By Kamoran1234
    The story includes a lot of dialogue about what makes a book good. Given that, this book seems to mock the reader in that it is painfully slow and doesn't seem worth finishing. Very disappointing for Grisham.
  • Great story!

    Great book, and interesting and dynamic characters! I enjoyed this book a lot. Definitely recommend it.
  • Love Grisham...but not this one...sorry!

    By Prescott Lady
    Good read until the end. It appeared that Grisham rushed to complete this novel. Too predictable.
  • What an entertaining story!!

    By Isla60
    Although most of John Grisham's novels are about lawyers, This was a pleasant surprise! He knows how to weave a tale. He knows how to put enough humor and suspense into his stories that you get so wrapped up in the characters you don't want the story to end!!!
  • Played to type

    By geotwaddle
    Pleasant summer read but ultimately unsurprising. So many opportunities to mix it up and depart from the predictable.
  • Easy fun read

  • Sub par at best

    By KLBA_0877
    As a fan I have always enjoyed Grisham’s books. This one was a huge disappointment. It took me over a year to read & I should’ve stopped while I had the chance. In my opinion, this was not a shining success.
  • No mountain tops on Camino Island.

    By Sambuviak
    A pleasant read albeit one without any real adrenaline. Few surprises and little suspense along the way but a comfortable read. I miss the excitement of his earlier works.
