The book totally caught my attention at the first and second chapter. It's just awesome and i couldn't take my eyes off it for even a second.

From the publisher:

In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions, a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives.

Because Troy Phelan's new will names a sole surprise heir to his 11 billion dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

Enter the lawyers. Nate O'Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan's family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate is crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman-pursued by enemies and friends alike-holds a stunning surprise of her own...


How i wish she didn't die.

One of the best John Grisham's novels I've read! I finished reading it in November/December last year but I didn't have the chance to write a journal about it, so here goes... :) [spoiler below]

When I started to read the novel, I was like "I can't stop now... I can't stop reading now" because it was good. The first two chapters were the best chapters as it uses the first person pronounce and I felt like I was 'in' the story.

Then, as I continue reading, I found the adventure just as amazing as the first two chapters. I can't stop reading especially when Nate enters into the jungle. And I was actually hoping that Nate and the nun would be together. I was sad when I read the part that the nun was dead.

Btw, this novel is truly amazing and it was also interesting to see the different characters of Troy's wives and children.
