Good premise, but somewhat disappointing. Too predictable. Not enough expansion of characters and story having to do with the cases. If Strip Mining is the big evil, get after it. Shallow characters, having flings, not much intelligence, capricious, nor morals. I like Grisham's books, but, he needs to flesh out, but some with morals, his characters, especially those in lead roles. He seems to be targeting an easy audience, made up up of those who are rudderless, just in it all for themselves. Devil may care.
