I usually like Grisham books and was looking forward to "The Guardians". However the book was a bit anticlimactic. The book is about a burned out public defender that leaves the public defenders office and becomes a minister. During his ministry, he becomes a crusader for exonerating innocent prisoners. I won't give it away but there is some happy moments but he leaves a lot open. I would have loved to see him maybe focus on one case and follow through on the apprehension of the guilty parties.
I liked the book though, hopefully the movie will be a little better and it will be "Based" on this book but not follow it that close.
