The Racketeer by John Grisham
Malcolm Bannister is a lawyer. He is in prison.
Five years ago, the FBI set him up as the fall guy for a crime he did not know he was committing. He has exhausted every avenue of appeal, and any hope of acquittal.
Judge Raymond Faweett is found dead in a remote lakeside cabin. There are no witness, no fingerprinters, no evidence. The investigators have no leads.
Bannister didn't know the judge. But he knows who killed him, and why.
It could be his ticket to freedom. And revenge...
