Book Review - Camino Winds by John Grisham

I have been a John Grisham fan over the years but his latest novel, Camino Winds, is a disappointment. The word that comes to mind is "schlock."

Camino Winds is a story about a hurricane destroying an east coast, outerbanks, island and during the hurricane a contract killing is committed. The man killed is a novelist who has written a novel depicting Medicare fraud by a nursing home chain operator who artificially keeps comatose patients alive to bilk Medicare for their extended care.

The main character, Bruce Cable, is a book store operator on the island who becomes the murdered novelist's literary executor and is determined to find the novelist's murderer.

The moral of the story is murky and while the reading of it is somewhat entertaining, the characters are flat and the plot leaves a lot to be desired.

Our recommendation here at UU A Way Of Life is to pass this novel up. Grisham has much better novels he has written in the past.
