Book Review – The Testament by John Grisham

Troy Phelen is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. Nate O'Riley is a high-octane Washington litigator who's lived too hard, too fast, for too long. Emerging from his fourth stay in rehab, he knows returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it's going to be murder. Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world with all its strivings and trappings and encumbrances, and went to live and work with a primitive tribe of Indians in the deepest jungles of Brazil. In a story that mixes legal suspense with a remarkable adventure, their lives are forever altered by the startling secret of "The Testament".

This has to be one of my most all time favourite books! I love it! I loved the way the characters were written and conflicted with each other with all the twists in the turns in the plotline... The way the storyline progresses into something that I had not expected really is a work of a genius!

If you like a good whodunit mixed with a bit of suspense and trapped underneath a whopping big secret which shakes the characters to their very core, you will love this book

10 out of 10

Best wishes
