Pelican Brief by John Grisham

Reviewed by Elaine Pasquali

Two Supreme Court Justices are murdered. The FBI has no clues. Their deaths afford the President the opportunity to appoint two ultra conservative justices who will assure a conservative court for years to come. A second year Tulane University law student, Darby Shaw, becomes obsessed with the crime and prepares a highly speculative brief. When everyone associated with the brief meet violent deaths and someone wants Darby dead, the brief, code named Pelican, attracts attention. A Washington Post reporter, Gray Grantham, becomes involved in the investigation. This is definitely a page turner but I found the last chapter anti-climatic.

How many stars does the book deserve?: ☆☆☆☆
