One of Grisham's best

‘In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions—a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives. Because Troy Phelan’s new will names a sole surprise heir to his eleven-billion-dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

Enter the lawyers. Nate O’Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan’s family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate goes crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman—pursued by enemies and friends alike—holds a stunning surprise of her own.’ – Amazon.


James King says;

I've read ten of Grisham's books and The Testament was one of the best.


I loved the pace, which barely slackened, but left enough time for reflection at every important phase before moving on. Typical Grisham legal thriller fiction at its best, it was easy-to-read and follow. Only slowed a bit in the first jungle scene.


The contrasting South American jungle and courtroom scenes in North America were well constructed.


Grisham creates suspense by settling an estate involving a ruthless family and an alcoholic protagonist. The intensity gave me a new understanding of a shocking affliction which affects so many people.


Many novels peter out, but this one is a testament to the author's ability to keep you dangling until the end.


Great stuff Mr. Grisham. I’m ready for the next one.
