The new one by John Grisham. I have to admit it was pretty good. A very easy read. Maybe five hours. But fun. All about NFL Italy.

Rick Dockery, the main character, reminds me of Jeff George: big arm, but a waste of talent.

I read it recently. I'm not a fan of Grisham by any means, but it was an enjoyable read. I played football at the D III college that Grisham (fictionally) notes scrimmaged the Parma team.

It made me hungry for Italian living.

Any Grisham fan looking for a similar read between novels, check out Brad Meltzer's stuff. Pretty similar...

 Try 'The Zero Game'; I particularly liked that one...
