In this new thriller set on Camino Island, popular bookseller Bruce Cable tells Mercer Mann an irresistible tale that might be her next novel. A giant resort developer is using its political muscle and deep pockets to claim ownership of a deserted island between Florida and Georgia. Only the last living inhabitant of the island, Lovely Jackson, stands in its way. What the developer doesn't know is that the island has a remarkable history, and locals believe it is cursed . . . and the past is never the past . . .

John Grisham, no.1 bestselling author and master of the legal thriller, takes us back to paradise. Filled with unpredictable twists, the return to Camino Island is guaranteed to be this summer's perfect escape.

Praise for Camino Winds:

'In American icon John Grisham's new novel, Camino Winds, an odd assortment of mystery and crime authors, some of them felons themselves, discover one of their colleagues has been murdered during the fury of a massive hurricane-the perfect crime scene' Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

'The Camino Island series, featuring trouble-prone bookseller Bruce Cable, is a perfect escapist mix of detective action, insider riffs on the literary world - and even a little romance' Mail on Sunday

'Camino Winds has all the usual Grisham hallmarks - a pacy plot and tension-filled scenes' Independent

'Another compelling read from Grisham, and will satisfy old fans and please new readers alike' Press Association

His lone work of non-fiction, The Innocent Man, was adapted into a six-part Netflix docuseries. He is the two-time winner of the Harper Lee Prize For Legal Fiction and was distinguished with the Library of Congress Creative Achievement Award For Fiction. When he's not writing, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Innocence Project and Centurion Ministries, two national organizations dedicated to exonerating those who have been wrongfully convicted. Much of his recent fiction explores deep-seated problems in our criminal justice systems. A graduate of Mississippi State University and Ole Miss Law School, he lives on a farm in central Virginia, around the corner from the youth baseball complex he built in 1996. He still serves as its Commissioner.

Reviews for Camino Ghosts

Praise for Camino Winds Cable is an engaging protagonist, full of ambiguities, a man whose own morality is full of 'grey areas' . . . Camino Winds has all the usual Grisham hallmarks - a pacy plot, tension-filled scenes - and the descriptions of a storm-battered island are well executed * Independent * A perfect summer read, enjoying all his plotting wizardry and deft characterisation * Irish Independent * Another gem from John Grisham . . . There is something very soothing about Camino Winds, despite the fact it deals with more than one brutal murder and a drugs conspiracy. The follow-up to Grisham's Camino Island, it's very different in tone to his legal thrillers . . . Grisham knows what he's doing * Observer *
