This was a very good book! At first, I didn't enjoy it much, but later on in the book, I started liking the crisis and the murder trial. I really liked the part where Theo found out that Mr. Duffy actually did kill his wife. The story was that Mr. Duffy went golfing, and used his golf cart to race home, kill his wife, grab the jewelry, and come back out to the golf course as if he didn't do anything. This was really interesting because it helped a lot in solving the crime, and stalled for time of letting Mr. Duffy walk, which means setting him free into the world. This book is recommended by me for middle schoolers, where they should learn a little bit about law. I really can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Overall it is a good book, but you won't be satisfied until you read the whole series. I won't spoil it too much but it ends in a cliffhanger. I recommend this book for people aged 8 - 16 depending on your reading level.

The Grisham response to "Encyclopedia Brown." Enjoyed it. Tailored toward Teen boys. The main character is 13. The Story has twists, will keep the reader guessing.

This book, the start to an epic series, is amazing. Firstly, I want to tell you that there isn't much action in this book, so if you're looking for something along the lines of Percy Jackson, then you're at the wrong place. However, if you like mysteries and want to know more about the law, this book is your soul mate. Honestly, I first came across this book when I was nine. It seemed quite uninteresting and boring to me back then, but now I love it. This book is full of suspense, mystery, and plot twists that will make you stay up as long as necessary to finish it. It is one of those books that you can't stop reading once you get started. Great read.

I like Grisham and I did like this set up to the Theodore Boone series but like so many series nowadays it was just a set up with the meat of the story to come in later books. I would recommend it to a thinking kid, not much action.
