I have recently read John Grisham Book the “The Associate”, after reading “The Associate” I instantly became the fan of John Grisham. Though there are many bestseller books of John Grisham, I picked up “The Summons” and “The King Of Torts“.

“The Summons” by John Grisham is not a complete legal thriller, if you love only legal thriller or expect a legal thriller from John Grisham, I suggest Don’t Buy this book. Though the main characters in this book are Lawyers and Judges, this not complete legal thriller. John Grisham’s Legal Thrillers will keep you awake whole night until you finish the book in single go, same happened when I started reading his book the “The Associate”, I finished it in single go, will post the review of the associate soon.

This book not have much true John Grisham but still it will keep you reading, with this book I think John Grisham tried some thing new out of his usual Legal Thriller. This book is more about morals and ethics.

Professor Ray Atlee receives the Summon from his dying father to visit home and discuss his will, he informs his drug addicted brother Forest about the summon and his bother tells him that he also got the same summon and he will also visit the house on the mentioned date.

The Summons

The Summons

When Ray arrives at his fathers home, his father is dead, he finds three million dollars in 27 boxes in his fathers study. Three million bucks are not mentioned in his fathers will. So Ray decides to keep the money and he decides to tell no one about the money not even his brother Forest because he fears if he share the money with him(Forest), he will eventually kill himself using this money for drugs. But Someone knows about the money and begin to tormenting Ray to put it where he found it and also they break in his house twice to get the money. Rest of the book follows how Ray track the source of the money and how he track who is behind his fathers money.

What I liked in this book is the twists and turns and climax.

I give it : 3/5.

Dirk Gently Holistic Detective Agency, is a Science Fiction Mystery Thriller and Comedy Novel by the author of Hitch hikers Guide to Galaxy “Douglas Adams”.
Dirk Gently is the name of Detective, who owns Holistic Detective Agency. Dirk Gently is something new in Mystery and Detective genre, it will make you laugh at the same time solves the puzzle surrounding the mystery, he doesn’t use the finger prints, witness to solve the case. He use the interconnectedness of things surrounding the suspect and solves the puzzle in innovative way.

The Plot of this book is little or little big non-linear, because the main theme of this book is time travel. You may ask why name holistic? here is the answer given by Dirk “The term ‘holistic’ refers to my conviction that what we are concerned with here is the fundamental interconnectedness of all things”.

When Dirk sees his old college mate Richard was entering into Susan Way’s house from window, sister of Gordan Way owner of Wayforward Technologie, he calls
Susan ways house and ask details about what he is doing there and at the end of call he says :

Dirk : “Meet me at the pizza parlor in half an hour. And bring money.”
Richard : “What — Dirk, are you trying to blackmail me?”
Dirk : “No, you fool, for the pizzas!” 🙂

At the same time there someone murders Gordon Way, while he meets Dirk, Dirk tells him that someone murdered Gordon Way and Policy thinks Richard is the suspect, now he tries to solve the mystery by using his unique interconnectedness technique.

In parallel, there was a Electric Monk in some desert with his horse, these monks are created to believe everything so that we need not to believe anything, this monk in desert believes everything for many many years and he starts to believe that there exist a door in the desert which leads him to somewhere, where, he don’t know but for sure somewhere, suddenly the door appears and he goes inside it, that door brings him to the bathroom of Reg – Professor Urban Chronotis at St Cedd’s.

Four billion ago, a group of Salaxalans attempts populate the earth but by laziness of there engineer causes the landing spaceship to explode, killing all the Salaxalans. The exlpode generates the spark of energy needed to create amino acids and start the process of life on Earth. The ghost of Salaxan Engineer remains and haunts the earth for billions of years, until he can correct his mistake and watches human life develops from small virus to intelligent species for four billion years. Finally the ghost discovers that Reg – Professor Urban Chronotis at St Cedd’s, has created the time machine and he can undo his mistake and save his Salaxalans friends and stop the life from creating on earth.

Now Dirk need to solve the mystery behind the Murder of Gordon Way and he has to save the humankind from total destruction- by stopping the ghost from using time machine and also uncover the mystery behind this electric monk.

This is the typical Douglas Adams novels, which has humor, mystery and science-fiction. This novel is little complicated and if you have read Douglas Adams best selling novel “The Hitch hiker Guide to the Galaxy” then you can read this novel, but this novel is more complicated that H2G2. If you haven’t read any of Douglas Adams books then I suggest first you read his Hitch Hiker Guide to Galaxy then you can pick this one.

I give it : 4/5.
