John Grisham works his narrative magic in newest legal thriller

From Maryland-

When an attorney takes on a matter of life and death, the client is usually the only person in peril.
But not in John Grisham’s new legal thriller, “The Guardians.” Danger stalks lawyer Cullen Post and the inmate he represents.
Post—an attorney-turned-Episcopal priest—combines those roles for Guardian Ministries, a four-person operation that investigates the cases of prisoners who might have been wrongly convicted.

With several successes in hand and five ongoing investigations, Post and his colleagues—founder Vicki Gourley, litigation chief Mazy Ruffin and investigator-exoneree Francois “Frankie” Tatum—accept the case of Quincy Miller. An African American convicted of murdering white lawyer Keith Russo of fictional Seabrook—a small town in the north Florida backwoods—Miller is in the 23rd year of a life sentence.
