My book for April was The Brethren by John Grisham published in 2000.
I was totally sucked in to the narrative from the first page and found it difficult to put the book down! For me, it contained all the elements of an expertly fashioned and totally believable crime story with a political sub-plot. In no way spoiling the plot, the main characters are two ex-high court judges and a disgraced Justice of the Peace who are serving lengthy sentences in a federal prison in Florida. With the help of a bent lawyer, they place advertisements in a contact magazine and pose as young men wishing to become 'pen pals' with older men.
At the same time they are busy writing their letters, a country is going to the polls to elect a new President.
A piece of American junk mail arrived fortuitously in the post box this week so I thought a collage would best depict this very enjoyable book. The fingerprints, letter (written in block capitals), SWM (single white male) and postage stamps with election badges set the scene for a great read.
