I have been a big fan and have read EVERY Grisham novel. This is just bad. The story arc is so lacking in credibility. How could Pete who suffered through what he did end up killing another for "sins" committed when he was presumed dead ? What allowed him to survive the atrocities of war would have allowed his mind to deal with an infidelity another way-- I think--- just did not ring true for me. The narrative was also lacking in tension-- very boring in fact, but I plowed through it. I think Mr Grisham is definitely past his prime or just being lazy. What a waste of printed paper!
