The Broker

  1. Grisham could have gone a little easier on the Italian-travel-guide motif.

  2. This book almost seems to have been written with a movie in mind.

  3. Towards the very end of the book, there is a small bit of corny dialogue: when Joel's son asks him what he planned to do, Joel says (paraphrasing slightly here), "Back to what I've always done, son. Cutting deals."

  4. Definitely not one of Grisham's best.
