As I cracked John Grisham’s “The Litigators,” sibling to 18 titles beginning with the same, hardworking article, I scanned the “Also By” page and found myself momentarily stumped.
Which ones had I actually read? Other than “The Innocent Man,” his memorable nonfiction work about a real-life miscarriage of justice, I wasn’t sure. Had I reviewed “The Brethren” or “The Broker?” “The Appeal” or “The Associate?”
That’s the trouble with potato-chip fiction. You scarf it down so fast, you lose track of how much you ate, not to mention the flavor: Barbecue? French onion?
