Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable novel about childhood, family, conflict and guilt from America's greatest storyteller John Grisham.
Thirty years have passed since 11-year-old Paul Tracy watched his troubled father, Warren, a pitcher for the New York Mets, clash with his childhood hero, the Cubs' golden-boy Joe Castle, in a contest from which no winners emerged.
Now the news that his father is dying brings the memory of that day flooding back. Deciding that it's time to face up to what really happened on that baseball field in 1973, father and son make their way to Calico Rock, Arkansas, where either redemption or rejection awaits them.

I agree with the previous reviewer, well written and if you like baseball 70% is game comentary. Not what I have come to expect from the great man.

Not Grishams best

A massive Grisham fan, but fear from his best work. Much prefer the law based books.
