I regret that I am dropping Grisham from my "must read" list of authors after reading THE ROOSTER BAR. I earlier commented on CAMINO ISLAND noting that I had liked his books when they first came out and then drifted away from them. These two book taken together as a test drive have driven me off again. Both deal with unique and interesting contemporary issues and have what could be generally interesting story lines. But character development is weak and the interactions of the characters are often hard to swallow. Plus there are so many improbable leaps in the story telling. Sorry, but I am done with him.
