By John Grisham
“In American icon John Grisham’s new novel, Camino Winds, an odd assortment of mystery and crime authors, some of them felons themselves, discover one of their colleagues has been murdered during the fury of a massive hurricane—the perfect crime scene. Since officials are preoccupied with the aftermath of the storm, the authors set out to solve the mystery themselves, in the type of wild but smart caper that Grisham’s readers love.” —Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing
John Grisham, #1 bestselling author and master of the legal thriller, sweeps you away to paradise for a little sun, sand, mystery, and mayhem.
With Camino Winds, America’s favorite storyteller offers the perfect escape.
Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen—even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime . . .
Just as Bruce Cable’s Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island. Florida’s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm.
The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce’s and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson’s injuries suggests that the storm wasn’t the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head.
Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson’s novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson’s computer is the manuscript of his new novel. Could the key to the case be right there—in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson’s plot twists—and far more dangerous.
Camino Winds is an irresistible romp and a perfectly thrilling beach read—# 1 bestselling author John Grisham at his beguiling best.
Disappointing2By jemr55Slow moving. Lots of time spent recapping the first book. I like Grisham, but he should stay away from sequels.
Not Grisham’s Best!1By rwa3/$&Did not live up to Camino Island which was much better. Seems like Grisham didn’t put much effort into this one. Couldn’t wait to get through it and move on to another book.
Camino Winds2By Grisham-no-moreI have read Mr. Grisham for several years but unfortunately, Camino Winds will be the last. I found the author’s reference to President Trump to be unnecessary and out of character for a top tier author. Likewise, I will avoid print material published by DOUBLEDAY. Admittedly a hurclean if not impossible goal, but I will try. As for Mr. Grisham, he’s out.
Camino Winds3By bobbiamacThe ebook version of this book was completely messed up. Sentences written over other sentences, some sentences left unfinished, hard to know what I missed.
This one was really phoned in1By Matt1859This is a very slow and predictable read - the story warrants a short story at best - will not be reading the next one!
Camino Winds5By PushpushStableProof again that Mr. Grisham is a master of every genre he puts his pen to. This one blows everything away with gale force winds.
Amateur writing1By Kman1111Very juvenile read. Definitely not a page turner. Could hardly wait to finish and luckily it was quite short. Quick write fo a quick buck to pay for his house on Camino island.
Camino Winds1By sharpevisionWow, so bad. I won’t waste my time writing more than that. He didn’t waste time thinking about making this book worthwhile.
Hunker down with this!5By Shake frustratedGrisham did it again. Fast paced, surprises, FL fun and always great characters. Loved the legal part too. Make this one of your house-bound reads. Hunker down with this one!
