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.
One man, a former attorney, knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and why. But that man, Malcolm Bannister, is currently residing in the Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. Though serving time, Malcolm has an ace up his sleeve. He has information the FBI would love to know. Malcolm would love to tell them. But everything has a price—and the man known as the Racketeer wasn’t born yesterday.
Praise for The Racketeer
“Exhilarating . . . surprising . . . ingenious.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Fast-paced . . . with enough startling plot twists—and changes of scenery, from Miami to Montego Bay and beyond—to surprise even the most suspicious reader.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Tautly plotted.”—Entertainment Weekly

    Grisham always has me page turning late into the night. The Racketeer was no different & left me wishing at the end I could change places with Malcolm!

  • Boring

    By rivdiz
    Don’t bother. Bad read. Too predictable and too much filler. Endless paragraphs that provide nothing to story
  • My favorite so far

    I’ve just recently discovered John Grisham so this is probably my 10th book of his and it’s easily been my favorite thus far. You really don’t know what’s coming or how it’s going to end and that’s the best part. I also love how he finishes his stories with the same energy he starts them, instead of just wrapping it up in a couple of pages and leaving tons of unanswered questions like a lot of writers tend to do.

    Could not put it down. Finished in two days. Great journey through legal system, law and the essence of Humanity both ugly and beautiful.
