#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham has a new hero ... and she’s full of surprises.
 
The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired.
 
In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal.

    As I have read several of Mr. Grisham’s including his first originals…this one in my opinion was a disappointment…
  • Feels Unfinished

    The story starts slow and picks up half way through the book, but suddenly ends with many unresolved cases. Wish it would have been longer.
  • Good book

    I had this book as a leisure reading. Would just pick it up from time to time. Never felt lost. Never really felt intrigued either. Not really one of Grisham’s best.

    The main character was just a filler, she never developed, the story just happened around her. The plot did the sss as me, the was promise if a story but it just fizzled out.
  • Another #1 Best Seller! Mesmerizing,

    I don't always make the time to read that I should, but when I do, I always first look for another John Grisham book. I have read about half of all the novels he has written, and I look forward to reading the rest. Gray Mountain was yet another mesmerizing story! Grisham has a way of writing that keeps you intrigued, and interested to the point of not wanting to put the book down until its completion. While reading, it's always as though I can visualize what's happening, as though it were a movie I was watching. It's the type of writing that keeps me coming back for more! Gray Mountain is yet another of these types of stories. I highly recommend this book, but then I highly recommend all his books!

    Great book. Terrific characters. Cannot believe Grisham did not make her a character in future books. Gigantic mistake and missed opportunity. He had it all set up for lots of stories..future books. Especially since some of his books after this were not top quality.

    Typical Grisham, he winds you up and gets you involved right away with a great plot and then lets you down with a weak ending. Always leaves a lot of questions on the table. Fun read.
