Mark Gimenez? better than Grisham

I'm reading a book called The Perk

Is he a big deal in the states?

I'd never heard of him but the guy writes better than Grisham in my opinion.

Or is it blasphamy to dis JG

Can't buy the ebook in the U.S., so I guess I'll never know.

Really? Is this not it?

http://www.amazon.com/The-Perk-ebook...2587125&sr=1-1

It's a cracking read--brilliantly touches on the moral ambiguities of drugs/ Immigration / the law in general

God you'd think it was mine

Mark Gimenez

Just tried to read "The Common Lawyer" by Mark Gimenez and decided it wasn't worth the effort. Maybe "The Perk" is a great improvement, but from my limited experience there's no way I'd compare him to Grisham.

The Perk is a fantastic read. Not sure if he's "better" than Grisham or not, but, they are, without question, similar.

Fantastic book, from a very, very solid writer.
