Grisham, John.  Theodore Boone, the fugitive. New York. 2016

Theodore Boone is on a class field trip to Washington, DC when he spots someone suspicious.  They are on the way to visit the Washington Monument.  While his classmates see this historic landmark, Theodore stays on the bus. He realizes it is Pete Duffy, a known criminal from his hometown of Strattenburg.   Pete Duffy is someone who is wanted for murdering his wife and escape. He is number seven on the FBI’s most wanted list.  Theodore called his uncle for help, his uncle flew to Washington, DC right away.

The star witness of the case is an illegal immigrant who is afraid of being deported.  Theodore Boone knows the judge and one of his friends from school knows the witness. The judge arranges for protective custody for Julio but he sneaks out after getting a text threatening him for testifying.   At the very end of the trial, Julio  and brought in to testify.  The judge offers him temporary citizenship in exchange for his testimony.  Pete Duffy is found guilty of murdering his wife for the life insurance. 

I really enjoy this series by John Grisham.  I would recommend who like mystery books.  I have learned a lot of law terms reading this series and cannot wait to read the next book.

I am an avid book reader! I have been reading nonstop since 7th grade when I first picked up Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I love crime, psychological thrillers, mystery/thrillers, suspense and horror. But I do like to venture outside the box on occasions.
