The ReckoningThe Reckoning by John Grisham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another winner by John Grisham.

Pete loves his family and his farm in the south. When the war was declared in Europe he realized that it was just a matter of time before he would be called up. He spent time in The Philipines and fighting the Japanese and was in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. Terrible things happened in those camps. Louis Zamperini told a lot also about these camps in his biography, Unbroken.

Pete was reported as missing in action while in the prison camp. What a wonderful day it was when he was finally sent home, very broken and needing hospitalization for months, but alive.

But something was not quite right. When he was home for only a short time, he sent his wife away to a mental asylum and shot the minister of his church point blank. But why did he do that? That is the question that you keep asking throughout the book.

An excellent read.
