John Grisham delivers high intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers in the fifth novel in his bestselling Theodore Boone series.
He was supposed to be having fun with his friends, not playing detective and stalking a serial killer.
Theodore Boone - teenage lawyer and courtroom hero - is on a class trip seeing the sights of the capital city. But he hadn't counted on seeing the most wanted man in the history of his home town, Strattenberg.
Suddenly Theo is caught in the hunt for an accused murderer, alongside the FBI. Theo knows he's getting in deep - and things could become even more dangerous. Because if this case goes back to court, it will be down to him.
Will justice finally be done . . . or will the killer's criminal allies be out for revenge?
