"Just as Bruce Cable's Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island ... The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce's and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson's injuries suggests that the storm wasn't the cause of his death: he has suffered several suspicious blows to the head"--Dust jacket flap.

This was a very quick read but not a great read. I think John Grisham is going the way of James Patterson. They are churning out books with very little depth. At least John Grisham isn’t co-authoring with his writing. The plot is very simple. I finished it because I wanted to see how it would end. His earlier books are much better. Lets hope he’ll write like that again.

Can anybody tell me if this is any better than the first? I mean, in that one, if the main character had done nothing the outcome wouldn't have been changed one bit. It's like nothing mattered.

Very good, the book practically read itself and I was done in a day. I'm glad I got it from the library and didn't buy it as it's probably not one I would ever read twice.
The backstory of the guy running a bookstore (every bookaholic's dream) appeals to me and, if he writes another "Camino" book, I will read it.

Just average at best. This would be at least another 100 pages longer and more in depth if it was a British or Scandinavian book. It seemed more like he just hit the high spots, sort of like a synopsis of the story rather than the whole story. One can only stand so many dinner conversations among rich authors before it gets really boring. I think in general, based on his last few books with the exception of Gray Mountain, Grisham has lost his mojo. Maybe when his publishing contract runs out, he should think about living on his royalties and go volunteer at the homeless shelter. However, I admit I will continue to buy and read whatever he puts out.

good read - enough twists and strong plot to keep the pages turning. I did not enjoy Camino Islands but this one I quite enjoyed.

Okay, not bad way to pass the time. Quick, four hours, when audio played at X2 speed. Hurricane scenario is intersting. Solving unravels smoothly, not too surprisingly, just a few somewhat disturbing details. Wraps up in a nice little package. Main characters are males of a certain age.

Another great Grisham book! Story stars slowly but picks up speed and has a strong finish!

"Camino Winds" is a stand-alone sequel to "Camino Island" with the same cast for the most part. I would have to say though that the most important character in this novel is a hurricane by name Leo. Leo ravages Camino Island leaving behind eleven fatalities. Is one of these a murder? The answer to this question plays a huge part in the novel and proves once and for all that the Pen is mightier than the sword. Not as good as the prequel but not bad . Don't read it on a windy rainy day.
