Number 1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham takes us back to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his first novel, A Time to Kill. This riveting collection of short stories features an unforgettable cast of characters: Wheelchair-bound Inez Graney and her two older sons embark on a bizarre road trip through the Mississippi Delta to visit Inez’s youngest son, Raymond—on death row. A hard-drinking, low-grossing divorce lawyer fed up with his wife, his life, and the law plans a drastic escape after an unexpected phone call. A quiet, unassuming data collector sets out to bring down a flashy casino owner with his skill at blackjack—as payback for the theft of his wife. A stalker hunts victims in a retirement home, a lawyer confronts a vengeful adversary from the past, and a young man from a prominent family is driven off by scandal and fear—but finds unexpected redemption on the wrong side of the tracks. Often hilarious, frequently moving, and always entertaining, this collection makes it abundantly clear why John Grisham is our most popular storyteller.

The kids spent a little over a week with us at the end of May into June. I had planned to take a ton of pictures while they were here, but I completely forgot until the last couple of days. I did wind up with a few pictures though.

I’m thoroughly enjoying the Jimmy O’Reilly series so far. I can’t wait to devour this book. Hopefully, there will be a third!

Book two of the Jimmy O’Reilly Mystery Series opens with twenty-seven bodies discovered on a back road near O’Reilly’s small Kansas town of Chisholm. He assumes the authorities will discover who they are and why they were killed. Like many of his assumptions, it is a false one. Instead, O’Reilly himself, is reluctantly pulled into the investigation, only to be immersed in the treacherous dealings of political ambition, human flesh traffickers and the Japanese Mafia. With his wry sense of humor and own flawed perceptions, O’Reilly relies, once again, on his side-kicking Aikido master friend, Laura Bascome, for aid and comfort. Tiresias, his prophetic blind Ornate Box Turtle, is back to offer more insights, clues and mystical visions from O’Reilly’s ancestors and the ancient Irish myths, as is Janie, his teenaged housekeeper. Fast paced and action-packed, yet filled with a sense of place, humor and insightful musings, Fields of Death pushes the reader into the grimy underworld of human flesh, bought, sold, traded and mutilated.
