Edmond Gagnon‘s review Nov 08, 2022  

As far as I’m concerned, this novel doesn’t live up to Grisham standards. It was a slow starter and not what I’d call a page turner. But if you’re looking for a book that you can pick up and put down every other day or so, Camino Winds is a decent story.


The plot tries to accelerate and get you to the conclusion quickly but falls short and is more of a police procedural, with average citizens taking on investigative rolls, while trying to solve their friend’s murder.


The story combines the fury of a level 4 hurricane with the curiosity of a local group of authors and a book store owner. Use your imagination to fill in the blanks.

I could find no reason to give this book any less than five stars. Considering the page count, it was a quick and easy read. The plot was a bit intricate but it moved well and held my interest throughout.
The story was like an action thriller, without all kinds of killing and mayhem. Instead, the author relied on suspense and intrigue to keep the pace lively and exciting.
A legal story that lacks Grisham’s riveting courtroom drama, it gives readers a whole new take on what it’s like for a hungry young wannabe lawyer.
My only minor disappointment was how the story ended so abruptly…I was waiting for a unique twist or turn of fait, but it just ended. Still, it was a great read.

A bit slow off the start, this book was truly enjoyable. Grisham is a master a weaving a courtroom tale and this story takes you a step further – into the office of Finley and Figg, two ambulance chasers. Formerly being in law enforcement, and spending hundreds of hours in courtrooms, I found myself chuckling and relating to the lawyers in this story. I’ve seen all sorts of good and bad lawyers in action and Grisham’s characterizations are right on.
The Litigators is kind of a riches to rags to riches kind of story for one particular lawyer who leaves a power legal firm with hundreds of solicitors to join a ’boutique law firm.’ Some of the plot is predictable, but the author keeps the story fun and interesting along the way. The ending wasn’t a big surprise and leaves you feeling satisfied with how you got there.
