The Confession

The Confession by John Grisham, 2/5

This novel is a political page-turner that examines the death penalty, criminal procedure and race relations, but it is written in a lurid, non-fiction style that comes across preachy and manipulative.  I would much rather read a thought-provoking, intellectually honest, true account instead of one where the author uses fictional scenarios to push real-world political agendas.
