At the end of the year, Nelson Searcy did a review of his top books for 2010. He listed The Confession as one of his top ten. I have to admit that as a John Grisham fan, he didn’t really have to twist my arm. The plot is inspired. A murderer comes into a pastor’s office and confesses to a crime that another man is about to be executed for in Texas. It is a great read and a fast plot. The pastor acts with honor and we see denominations at their best (worst…). The husband/wife relationship is awesome.
I won’t ruin the ending but I do think this is a great read. You have to be aware of language but any mature adult should be able to wade through it.
