#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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.

    The story kept me glued to the book until the very end.
  • Classic Grisham

    By huffdhuff
    If you hate the feds. This books for you.
  • Another good one

    By excersise guy
    I had a hard time putting this one down. The characters take so many risks that you just have to read “a few more pages” to see what will happen. A good yarn, with an original plot, and several good twists.
  • Wonderful

    By Ptvogelzang
    Completely engrossing and entertaining

    By Joanabake
    Grisham at his best. Never a dull moment
  • Riveting!

    By PeaceLoveUnderstanding
    Having read many Grisham novels, I must say this is one of the best. The plot swirls around with little hints here and there. It is riveting to the last word.
  • Good stuff

    By Cry havoc! And let slip the..
    Formulaic, but a fun page turner
  • Loved this book

    By Ljh@1100
    Very good read.
  • Disappointing

    By scottygirl1234
    I miss the J. Grisham of old. So many of his newer books read like he had a deadline to meet for a publisher. This one is the same. Boring, not much character development, a step-by-step narration: “and then we did this. And then this happened. And then we reacted like this. So then they did that.” I’m done.
  • Easy reading

    This is a very good read. I did not want to put the book down.
