"Grisham has come up with yet another near-flawless plot... ****" (Mirror)
"John Grisham is of course celebrated for his brilliant legal thrillers and in that field he has few equals" (Barry Forshaw Daily Express)
"The Confession is an airing for the beliefs of the author, but it is also a page-turner. Grisham is careful never to preach ... he never forgets his primary purpose which is to entertain ... Grishamites will find all their buttons pressed." (Barry Forshaw Independent)
"The Confession is a campaigning novel, attacking the death penalty and a way of doing justice (with a malign nexus of thuggish cops, supine judges and officials elected on promises of being hard on crime) that Texas epitomises ... another engrossing, teeming portrait of the Deep South." (John Dugdale Sunday Times)
"Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own." (Shari Low Daily Record)

This is I think the first book of any kind that I have listened to instead of reading, and I have to say that the narrator Scott Sowers does an outstanding job, managing to change the tone and inflection of the many characters' voices in such a way that it is often unnecessary to use the words "Kerber said" or "Keith said". He is clearly a very skilled and professional narrator. I'm currently listening to the latest Michael Connelly novel (The Late Show) and the narrator for that is nowhere near as good as Scott Sowers. So as a listening experience on its own, The Confession gets a solid 5 stars, but basically it's just too long a story.
As was probably Grisham's intention, the novel will make many people - especially in the US - have a re-think about the death penalty.
