A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University's Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless but Princeton, has insured it for twenty-five million dollars. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts. Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer's block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable's circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets. But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there's trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it.

An OK read, but this novel does not have the intensity of Grisham's earlier books. Disappointed because I had high expectations. Kristi & Abby Tabby

This book has a little action at the beginning of the book and then very little action throughout. Grisham takes the time to develop his characters however the characters themselves are mostly boring, unengaging, and unlikeable. Ironically, the book's main character is a writer struggling with writer's block. More than halfway into the book the writer and a book seller are discussing the irrationality of continuing to read a book that hasn't grabbed them in the first 50-100 pages. Both decide that there are too many books out there to waste time on a book that doesn't draw them in. I decided to take the characters' advice and turned the book in before finishing.
