An engrossing theme of the homeless and helpless by Grisham. He is the ultimate story-teller of the thousands of people who are left in the trenches by the rich and powerful. Grisham gives a face to the poverty-stricken people who live in the streets. This is a sociological drama the subjects of which are grounded into loss and despair. We, in our blessed states, have no need to bother with the lost souls.
