對犯罪小說大師約翰·格林沙姆感到陌生?不知道該從哪本開始閱讀?以下是約翰·格林沙姆最受歡迎的五本驚險小說。

1. The Firm
1.《糖衣陷阱》

The Firm is the book that made Grisham known. Released in 1991, it quickly topped the bestsellers lists and was made into a major motion picture starring Tom Cruise. Read The Firm to see where it all started and why Grisham is as popular as he is today.
小說《糖衣陷阱》,是約翰·格林沙姆的成名之作。1991年一經出版,便迅速占領各大暢銷書榜。該小說后拍攝為電影,并由湯姆·漢克斯領銜主演。閱讀這部成名之作——《糖衣陷阱》,你會找到格林沙姆至今仍受追捧的原因。

2. The Rainmaker
2.《造雨人》

The Rainmaker brings humor to the fast paced courtroom drama that Grisham is so good at writing.
《造雨人》將幽默詼諧融入快節奏的法庭戲劇,這正是格林沙姆極為擅長的手法。

3.The Testament
3.《瘋人遺囑》

Similar to Grisham's other novels in its legal suspense, The Testament adds a new spin by drawing the main character into a dangerous journey through the remote regions of Latin America. This novel explores greed, materialism, sin and redemption.
與約翰·格林沙姆其他富含法庭內容的犯罪小說相似,《瘋人遺囑》通過刻畫主角在拉丁美洲偏遠地區的危險之旅而為小說添加了新的情節。這部小說探討了貪婪、實利主義、罪惡與救贖。

4. The Summons
4.《傳票》

The Summons has a simple plot, but it still keeps the pages turning. It is the story of two sons and their estranged father, who they find dead in his Mississippi home. There are familiar elements--a large sum of money, lawyers--but the story does not feel old despite the typical Grisham formula.
《傳票》敘述簡潔,引人入勝。小說圍繞父子展開,兒子們意外發現失和的父親死于密西西比的家中……小說中不乏讀者熟悉的元素——大筆的錢以及律師——但是大家不會覺得厭倦,畢竟這正是格林沙姆作品的特點所在。

5. The Broker
5.《掮客》

The Broker takes place in Italy, and the first half of the book is slower than some readers may want, describing Bologna in detail. The pace quickens and provides a good ridein the end.
《掮客》的故事發生在意大利,作者使用大量筆墨描述了意大利城市博洛尼亞,因此本書前半部分的情節發展也許會比讀者預想的更慢。小說后半部分進程加快,展現了扣人心弦的故事。
