Not a typical Grisham book
I made the mistake in thinking that this would be a full-length book as it is "unabridged" and the many John Grisham books I've so far listened to (and enjoyed) are all a lengthy listen. However, this book is a pared-down, simple story not a bit like the author's usual intricately plotted page-turners. I was even more disappointed because the narrator read the book at break-neck speed with little attempt give the characters different voices. If you're a fan of this author I'd recommend that you give this book a miss.

More appealing to older teenagers
I persevered with this to the end as I did want to find out what happened to the missing girl. I found the story quite childish and the portrayal of teenage detective would have appealed to me 35 years ago!! Perhaps more serious than the Famous Five which I did enjoy in my teenage years.
I didn't find the story very gripping and the whole courtroom parts were rather boring...the animal court could have been omitted as I didn't see its relevance to the overall story.
Hoping my next choices will be more to my taste.
It was well narrated with good expression.
