“The Guardians,” the newest legal thriller from John Grisham, a true wizard of the form, is certainly not going to disappoint. Fans of the author are going to find it wholly satisfying, even as Grisham seems to be rather subtly experimenting with the genre that has afforded him the acclaim he has enjoyed for decades.

“The Guardians” are, in fact, members of the Guardian Ministries, a small group of legal defenders “in a small corner of an old warehouse on Broad Street in Savannah.” The Guardian Ministries is kept alive by its founder Vicki Gourley, a devout Christian who has set as her life’s work exonerating people convicted of crimes they did not commit.
