The blurb from Goodreads.com. scroll down for my review.
Theodore Boone is back, and he’s facing his most dangerous case yet. As Strattenburg sits divided over a hot political and environmental issue, Theo finds himself in the middle of the battle. When he uncovers corruption beneath the surface, Theo will confront bigger risks than ever to himself and those he loves. But even face-to-face with danger, Theodore Boone will do whatever it takes to stand up for what’s right.
This is the fourth instalment of the Theo Boone series, a young wannabe lawyer, in which Theo gets involved with the opposition of the planning of a by-pass where he lives.
This is a great book for the younger reader, I have read them all as I am a fan of John Grisham, they are a quick read for an adult, and also easy for the younger readers. It is typical John Grisham with less courtroom drama.
This fourth book might even open the eyes of some older readers due to the subject. These series as a whole teaches different legal aspects of everyday life.
It is a little slow to get going, which is a shame and Theo seems a little mature for his age with loads of freedom, but he also has plenty of responsibilities, his parents, both lawyers are respectable members of the community and are doing the right thing for their son.
Unfortunately this is not one of the better books in the series, John Grisham seems to have lost it a little here.
