The Guardians by John Grisham Book Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • A classic legal thriller—with a twist. • "A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes such as false incarceration, the death penalty and how the legal system shows prejudice.” —Associated Press

In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young Black man who was once a client of Russo’s. 

Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence. But no one was listening. He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time. Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.

They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

Great Story. I didn’t know the sole purpose of certain organizations was to work toward exonerating those falsely accused of crimes. It was very interesting to learn how hard these people work to prove innocence. The dedication to their purpose has to be admired. Well done!

The Guardians. Great Read! Based on real work going on.

The Guardians. Good read, entertaining.

Not the best. Too many poorly developed characters. Several rambling plots. Author continuously denigrates small town people and small town life. A real elitist.

The Guardians The Law and Lawers. By scapes101 I found it hard to put this book down. As usual the details, the details, the details and the anticipation keeps me reading. Read every book John Grisham has written and kept them all for future rereads.

Clever, magnetic character’s, lost sleep trying to read it all.. Fantastic read with all the elements of humanity at its worst and very best. The sleuthy scenes are magical and you can’t get enough. This was a prize to read.

The Reckoning. I’ve read all of John Grisham’s novels, the reckoning was a thrilling story, and I can’t wait for the new book release in October.

The Guardians. Grisham has lost his way. A book filled with SJW talking points. From page turners like The Firm to ranting about the injustice of the justice system. I’m done with this author. You’ve lectured me for the last time.

He is a master. I can always count on Grisham to deliver. I am an avid reader and have read all of his books. Unlike other big name writers, Grisham stand true to his mission to write books with substance. I was saddened when I got to the last pages. Lots of twists and turns, this is a new story line for him but he delivers masterfully. Great read and well worth the money. Thank you, Mr Grisham for continuing to care about your readers.

Good, not great. Predictable but nice story.

A Good Read. This was a good book. Enjoyed it!

BORING been there read this.. This story has been done to many times. Just a group trying to get innocent people out of jail. Reads like any other story written about this story line. I could not finish it

The Guardians. Great story and great humanism displayed by the author. Wonderful to know that there are dedicated crusaders out there who sacrifice their lives for true justice.

Worth the wait. by the middle of the book it was hard to put down. Good job to the author and research done.

2nd. This is my second time reading this masterful piece of fiction based on true events. I love it both times. I hope one day in the future to enjoy it again. Mr Grisham is my all time favorite writer. I have read nine better. Thanks for the adventure 📚📚📚

A typical Grisham book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was somewhat predictable but it was still a page turner. Good story and I would highly recommend it.

Not what I expected but so good!. I’m so glad I read this. Grisham’s skilled writing made me wish I could be one of the Guardians. It started out slow but thoughtful, the pace of the lawyers at work striving to exonerate their clients. The final third was great, full of pieces coming together and a bit of adventure; I couldn’t put it down. I appreciate understanding this area of our failed system better and my heart breaks for those paying for crimes they didn’t commit. A huge thank you to lawyers who sacrifice so that some may go free. Keep up the good work and may God bless you!

The Guardians. Typical Grisham but certainly entertaining. I wonder how good he could be if he raised the bar.

The Guardian. Excellent

The Guardians. Hope this is the beginning of more like this from Mr Grisham! Great read!

Excellent. Riveting, inspirational and with the flow of action that I love.

Another Great One From Grisham.... Amazing story and I welled up at the end. Can’t say enough about the story detail, the pace and the emotion of this wonderful book. I read all of Grisham’s books and he is on a roll with The Guardians and previously Rooster Bar!

Great novel. I’m smiling seeing a vision of Quincy dozing in that back seat. I’m smiling envisioning the trooper’s disbelief seeing those two preachers in the front seat of that pickup truck, and I’m laughing softly at such a beautiful ending to a horrific tale.

Great book . . wonderful story!. A gripping book . . Completely different plot than what I’m used to from Grisham. Pulling for a convict . . imagine that! A good, but sad story . . never knew the background behind writing it. Kudos to Grisham . . loved the reference to The Salty Pelican, my favorite place on Amelia!

The Gaurdians. Excellent read & really makes you think. Idea & some story is real. Grisham told the story & your reaction & ponderance of the topic is your own take away. As a writer he always makes me think & look at things from a different perspective while still making it entertaining & a page turner. Highly recommend. GA Booklover

Excellent. I’ve read just about all John Grisham's books, and this one is certainly one of his best!

The Guardians. Great read. Couldn’t put it down. Love John Grisham’s books!

Wasted money. Another disappointment from John Grisham. After reading books like The Client, The Firm, Runaway Jury, his more recent offerings pale. They’re boring, preachy, hard to get through and a colossal waste of money. I doubt I’ll buy another one of his books again unless I find it on the sale rack. Grisham used to be my favorite author. Now I’m just a disillusioned former fan.

Engaging and Eye-opening. Like many of the other reviewers, I have read every Grisham novel. The Guardians is another classic. Detailed and educating, this based-on-a-true-story book takes us out of our comfortable self focused lives and helps us to realize that there are real victims who are wasting away in prisons because of corrupt people. It should anger us. Hats off to John Grisham for disclosing this travesty.

Excellent read. Excellent. Storyline, movement, ending - all wonderful.

Loooooved it. Plain and simple - really good read about real life issues.

Good Read. Excellent and quick read.

Impressive edge of your seat novel.. It took 3 days to complete reading this. John Grisham always keeps me up at night since I can’t put the book down. To know that there men and women wrongly incarcerated is maddening. I’m thankful Mr. Grisham is using his gift of writing to shed light in this area and hopefully effect change.

I loved this book. It was a wonderful story..but don't stop here, please give me another like this.

Nothing special. I have read my fair share of Grisham books with delight this book however was horrible. I will be very careful in the future.

A sleep-robber. Couldn’t put it down. Best I’ve read in a while.

A let down. Predictable, boring, doesn’t seem like it was written by Grisham. Nothing exciting going on in this one

Great Read!!!. Like always John Grisham delivers a page turner. From beginning to end this was a great story. I feel like the story comes to life and I am engulfed in a story where I can picture each scene and each courtroom setting. I am on to my next book. Thank you Mr Grisham.

Yes!!. Great story in the classic tradition of Grisham. This writer and this narrator are a winning combination.

A must read. An easy to read and understand book that gives information about innocent people being convicted and many times totally set up, even when the punishment is death. We need to fix our justice system to stop prosecutorial misconduct which allows a guilty person to remain free to commit more crimes. Based on a real case, read this book to see if this man gets found not guilty in time or will he be executed with drugs that may actually cause severe suffering while killing him?

Well written, a good, believable tale.. Typical Grisham, well researched and believable. Interesting, fleshed out characters.
