The Judge's List: John Grisham’s latest breathtaking bestseller Kindle Edition
***THE SUNDAY TIMES THRILLER OF THE MONTH***
'Besides the usual Grisham virtues of an arresting idea, polished plotting and vivid social snapshots, what's impressive here is his willingness to take on fresh challenges' THE SUNDAY TIMES
Nonstop suspense from theSunday Times bestselling author: Investigator Lacy Stoltz follows the trail of a serial killer, and closes in on a shocking suspect - a sitting judge.
In The Whistler, Lacy Stoltz investigated a corrupt judge who was taking millions in bribes from a crime syndicate. She put the criminals away, but only after being attacked and nearly killed. Three years later, and approaching forty, she is tired of her work for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct and ready for a change.
Then she meets a mysterious woman who is so frightened she uses a number of aliases. Jeri Crosby's father was murdered twenty years earlier in a case that remains unsolved and that has grown stone cold. But Jeri has a suspect whom she has become obsessed with and has stalked for two decades. Along the way, she has discovered other victims.
Suspicions are easy enough, but proof seems impossible. The man is brilliant, patient, and always one step ahead of law enforcement. He is the most cunning of all serial killers. He knows forensics, police procedure, and most important: he knows the law.
He is a judge, in Florida - under Lacy's jurisdiction.
He has a list, with the names of his victims and targets, all unsuspecting people unlucky enough to have crossed his path and wronged him in some way. How can Lacy pursue him, without becoming the next name on his list?
The Judge's List is by any measure John Grisham's most surprising, chilling novel yet.

We discover early on that Jeri believes a judge has murdered her father 20 years ago- and several other people since then. She has been too scared to go to the police for years as she thinks this judge will know and will kill her too.
She insists on anonymity when she makes her complaint to Lacey but then Jeri sends mocking letters to the judge telling him that he is being investigated.
Yes it does add to the suspense that the judge knows but why does Jeri do that? Why didn't Jeri just use an alias and give the police the information years ago? The whole point of getting Lacey to investigate is supposedly so that the judge can't find out - although why he wouldn't know about Lacey's investigation when he would know about the police is never really explained.
But then Jeri sends him a letter and tells him anyway?
I simply can't get over this. It spoilt the whole book for me.
The end came too quickly and lots of details were left. I’ll get over it
