Waiting On Wednesday #3

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

The Racketeer by John Grisham

Set For Release On: October 23rd, 2012

Summary From John Grisham’s Website:

Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered.

Judge Raymond Fogletree just became number five.

His body was found in the basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies—Judge Fogletree and his young secretary.

I did not know Judge Fogletree, but I know who killed him, and why.

I am a lawyer, and I am in prison.

It’s a long story.

John Grisham has been one of my favorite writers for years now and I can’t wait to read his next book The Racketeer! I’m so happy that I don’t have to wait much longer (it comes out next week, squee!) to dive into it. The summary sounds pretty good don’t you think? I think Grisham is an author that you have to experience if you haven’t already, so many of his books are must reads!

Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment on what you think about The Racketeer, John Grisham, or your own Waiting On Wednesday post! ^.^

  98. Siiri says:

    I must be the only person on the planet who has not read anything by John Grisham yet. I plan to, most deifintely do, but there are just so many books on my TBR pile that I just can’t pick every book out there. However, I hope you enjoy this once it’s released and luckily Oct 23rd isn’t that far away :)

    Thank you for stopping by :)

    Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination

  99. Nope, Sliri is not the only person never to have read John Grisham. I haven’t either. I’m not sure if he’s my thing exactly. :/ I was recommended one, I think, so I might read that. A Painted House or something like that.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy your pick!

  100. Yea I’ve never read John Grisham either…. People say he’s great, he’s just never particularly caught my interest. Thanks for sharing and stopping by mine!

  101. Lizzy says:

    It’s been quite a long time since I read a JG novel (I think my freshman year in high school), so I definitely need to go pick up one or two. Great pick!

  102. Tiffa says:

    Check out what I’m waiting on!

  106. rachelanette says:

  111. I hadn’t seen this one before but I saw it now and I like it. It sounds interesting! I might add it on my to-read list but first I want some reviews.. Great pick, though. Thank you for visiting my last week’s WOW and I’m sorry it took me so long to visit back!

  112. I’m sort of ashamed to admit that I have yet to read a John Grisham novel. I should rectify that soon. I don’t know why I haven’t either since they always appeal to me.
    Thanks so much for passing by my post and sorry for the late response!
