Description

The most corrupt judge in US history. A young investigator with a secret informant. The electrifying new thriller.

Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's 1,000 judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name who has an extraordinary tale to tell.

Myers is representing a whistle-blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates, this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead.

Since the casino was built, the judge has made several fortunes off undeclared winnings. She owns property around the world, she hires private jets to take her where she wishes, and her secret vaults are overflowing with rare books, art and jewels. No one has a clue what she's been doing - until now.

Under Florida law those who help the state recover illegally acquired assets stand to gain a large percentage of them. Myers and his whistle-blower friend could make millions. But first they need Lacy to start an investigation. Is she ready to pit herself against the most corrupt judge in American history, a judge whose associates think nothing of murder?

Nerve wracking Narration

I would have enjoyed the novel so much more if I hadn't had to listen to the worst narration I have ever been subject to. For me, the performance of the Narrator is tantamount to the success of the story. Cassandra needs to buy a florist shop or take many more voice lessons

The worst narration ever!

Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Cassandra Campbell?

John Grisham yes.... Cassandra never ever ever

What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

Not listening to the story because of the narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator sounded like she was trying to seduce you from the first word!

Any additional comments?

The narrator is the most important part of an audible book, it is the deciding factor to purchase or not, or to continue listening or not. It also adds to the experience of the story overall. Unfortunately this was a very disappointing choice for a John Grisham novel.

Another Gresham stunner

Like his other novels Whistler is geographically accurate with legal intertwining and fun relationships. The audio reader was smooth with only a few lapses in accent

What a boring book

Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Cassandra Campbell?

I have read all John Grisham's books, but this one just did not intrigue me one little bit.

Would you be willing to try another book from John Grisham? Why or why not?

I would think twice

What didn’t you like about Cassandra Campbell’s performance?

Not bad but quite monotonous, however the content was so boring and predictable I don't blame her.

Was The Whistler worth the listening time?

No

Any additional comments?

Mr. Grisham shouldn't release books of this quality

Good Thriller

Starts slowly but then tempo changes to high-speed thriller. Well narrated and subtle twists. Easy to recommend.
