Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Two families. One courtroom showdown. • John Grisham’s most gripping thriller yet. • “A legal literary legend.” —USA Today
 
John Grisham returns to Mississippi with the riveting story of two sons of immigrant families who grow up as friends, but ultimately find themselves on opposite sides of the law. Grisham’s trademark twists and turns will keep you tearing through the pages until the stunning conclusion.

For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, and drugs to contract killings. The vice was controlled by small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumored to be members of the Dixie Mafia.
 
Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends, as well as Little League all-stars. But as teenagers, their lives took them in different directions. Keith’s father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to “clean up the Coast.” Hugh’s father became the “Boss” of Biloxi’s criminal underground. Keith went to law school and followed in his father’s footsteps. Hugh preferred the nightlife and worked in his father’s clubs. The two families were headed for a showdown, one that would happen in a courtroom.
 
Life itself hangs in the balance in The Boys from Biloxi, a sweeping saga rich with history and with a large cast of unforgettable characters.

The first seven hours were long hardly interesting. End of the book was somewhat better though 17 hours of this was far too much for me. I like his writings generally but this did not appeal to me.

Another powerful Grisham that never disappoints. The narration was pitch on and there are twists and turns that I did not expect. I love every October knowing a new John Grisham novel waits for me!

The narration of this book made it extremely difficult from me to listen to. I kept stopping the playback after listening for only a few minutes. Finally gave up and read the book.

I liked this book, especially because it combines many of my favorite elements of John Grisham's books. Courtroom drama, coming of age, suspense, and an ending that drew things together well. My only comment is that this book seems to have less of one specific plot, and rather is just about the lives, interactions and entanglement of two families. There are many subplots in the book but not one "big thing", like most of Grisham's books. Either way, I enjoyed it. Michael Beck is incredible as usual.
