Coming Soon: Gray Mountain by John Grisham

John Grisham introduces a female as his protagonist for the first time in his writing career. As a Grisham fan, I expect a lot from Samantha Kofer, a third year associate of New York's largest law firm. Hopefully, Grisham shows his true skills as writer: by making Gray Mountain live up to women literary expectations. The New York Times Bestseller list has featured many of Grisham's past novels. Expect Gray Mountain to remain standing on the every noteworthy top charts. Release Date: October 21, 2014 Approx. 384 pages. Doubleday Books Publishingcontinue reading →
