Title: Gray Mountain

Author: John Grisham

Rating: 2/5


Being an ardent fan of John Grisham, I found this to be a totally disappointing read.
Talks to length about coal mining industry and their illegal strip mining activities, which involves seizing lands illegally, blowing up mountains and reducing them to flat lands; causing environmental hazards like contamination of underground water leading to cancerous deaths, miners suffering from black lung disease due to prolonged exposure of coal dust and other illegal activities of denying claims to the coal miners and general population who have been suffering due to these unlawful mining activities.
The book was overwhelming with several other cases running in parallel.
Slow, boring and dry read with abrupt ending!
