    Description

    They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. One was sent up for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. And the third, for a career-ending drunken joyride. Meeting daily in the prison law library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong.

    Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich - very fast. And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam - while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt. A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grip - and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings. For the Brethren, the timing couldn't be better. Because they've just found the perfect victim....

    My Favorite Grisham to Date

    I've read (listened) to most of Grisham's work, and this is my favorite thus far. I really enjoy Grisham's dry sarcasm, and this book is full of it.

    Great Read

    This was my first audible book and I enjoyed it immensely. The narration was wonderful, and the storyline kept me involved from the first page to the last. I almost wanted my hour long commute each way to work to be longer.

    This'll work!

    Very cool story. Grisham interwove two seemingly disjointed tales into each other gracefully. There wasn't much of a "mystery" involved as the reader can easily guess where the story is going. That fact, however, doesn't take anything away from the sheer brilliance of Grisham's storytelling effort here.

    Grisham broke out of the cookie cutter mold with this novel. There is no "good guy". Every character has a different angle and motivation but they're all crooks. It's great fun! The narration is fantastic.

    Give it a whirl.

    Lame Recording

    Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Frank Muller?

    I love John Grisham novels

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Brethren?

    The story

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not at all

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed that the recording is so poor. I've streamed and listened to the story from my local library. There is nothing wrong with that recording. The Audible recording repeated sentences in each chapter and would unexpectedly drop in volume. Frustrating.

    Any additional comments?

    Is Audible able to offer a better recording?

    Exciting and humorous with clever twist

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book ?another one of Grisham's best. Frank Muller, as usual, is a splendid narrator.

    The Brethren is a pungent study of morality with characters drawn from a clear comprehension of human nature. Spicer, Beech and Yarber will no doubt plummet to the same fatal calamity as treacherous Trevor.
    It's not good to be too greedy.

    One of his best books

    I love the humor that Grisham spews in his novels & this book is overflowing with it. By far this is one of my favorite Grisham's.
    Frank Muller has a wonderful reading voice & captures the story fully, it is sad that he is no longer with us.

    Disappointing

    Story developed slowly, which would have been tolerable, had the reader’s sentences not ended like he was continually out of breath. Also, he did a poor job of impersonating female voices. A female, second reader would have made the story much more enjoyable.

    Recording quality

    There are many spots in this recording where a line is repeated. Otherwise the story is interesting and the audio entertaining.

    Another home run

    What can I say?? Just a great story made better by the narrator, Frank Muller. His passing last summer leaves big shoes to fill for future narrators.

    Good story but badly cut

    Several times, audio repeats a complete sentence. Publisher should listen to it completely and then cut out the duplicate parts.
