Waterstones Says

The bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Bruce Cable returns in this compelling follow-up to Grisham’s bestselling Camino Island, featuring a devastating hurricane and a brutal, unexplained murder.

When Hurricane Leo threatens Florida's Camino Island, the Governor is quick to issue an evacuation order. Most residents flee but a small group of diehards decide to ride it out. Amongst them is Bruce Cable, proprietor of Bay Books in downtown Santa Rosa.

The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are levelled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people are killed. One of the victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce's who wrote timely political thrillers. But evidence suggests that the storm wasn't the cause of Nelson's death - he had received several mysterious blows to the head.

Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed with the aftermath of the storm and in no condition to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson's novels were more fact than fiction. And somewhere on Nelson's computer is the manuscript of his new novel - could the key to the case be right there, in black and white? Bruce starts to look into it and what he finds between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson's plot twists - and far more dangerous.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Grisham packs… material in: on conditions in exploitative nursing homes, the methods of contract killers and, above all, the impact on Florida of 2018’s Hurricane Michael... Threaded through the book, these vivid passages feel like first-hand reportage.’ - The Sunday Times

'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. Since officials are preoccupied with the aftermath of the storm, the authors set out to solve the mystery themselves, in the type of wild but smart caper that Grisham's readers love' - Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

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

'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

'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

“Camino Winds”

I have read and personally purchased everything written by John Grisham, and so far I have enjoyed just about every book. They have all been 'Cannot put down books'. Camino Winds -for me - does not reach... More

“Not as good as Camino Island”

it's unlike John Grisham to use the same characters in follow up books. Despite Camino Winds not being (in my opinion) as good as Camino Island it is still worth reading. The problem John Grisham has is that he... More

“Another enjoyable Grisham novel”

It was an easy read and very typically Grisham. It was very topical with it's plot involving unregulated medicine, care homes & failures of the police. I'm looking forward to his next one (& might... More
