#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? A pillar of the community who towered over local law and politics for forty years, Judge Atlee is now a shadow of his former self??a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home in Clanton, Mississippi.

Knowing that the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. Ray Atlee is the elder, a Virginia law professor, newly single, still enduring the aftershocks of a surprise divorce. Forrest is Ray??s younger brother, the family??s black sheep.
The summons is typed by the Judge himself, on his handsome old stationery, and gives the date and time for Ray and Forrest to appear in his study. Ray reluctantly heads south to his hometown, to the place he now prefers to avoid. But the family meeting does not take place. The Judge dies too soon, and in doing so leaves behind a shocking secret known only to Ray . . . and perhaps to someon

This is an older one by John Grisham but it did not disappoint. It tells the story of Ray Atlee, a law professor at the University of Virginia. His father, Reuben, is a Chancery Judge in Mississippi and his brother, Forrest, has been in and out of various rehabs. Ray and Forrest both receive a "summons" from the Judge to appear at the Judge's home at a certain time on a certain day. Ray arrives first and finds his rather has died but he also finds $3 million hidden in boxes in a closet. He does not know where the money came from nor does he know why his father has the money. Forrest shows up and they start the funeral plans and the probate process for the estate. During this and afterward, Ray is figuring out what to do with the money. His apartment gets broken into and his dad's house is vandalized. Who else knows about the money? ( )

Grisham consistently delivers a great read. This story about fractured relationships between 2 adult sons and their recently deceased southern father, a retired judge, is set up and delivered very well. ( )

it's been awhile since I've visited the Grisham world and thought it was time. Here, two brothers receive a letter from their failing father to return home to discuss his estate. When the good brother arrives, he finds his father dead, and a huge stash of cash in a cupboard. The rest of the book tracks his attempts to find the source of the cash, and figure out what to do with it. As always, Grisham is inventive with the legal details, particularly with the efforts to hide and figure out the cash. It's not Grisham's best but it was readable, even if I figured out who was behind all the twists.

4 bones!!!! ( )

Judge Atlee was a scrupulously honest jurist, so it stuns Ray when he finds $3 million dollars in cash after the judge’s death. There’s no good answer for its appearance. So who else knows and is threatening him? ( )

Readable but poor ending - damp squib

It came by mail, regular postage, the old-fashioned way since the Judge was almost eighty and distrusted modern devices.
