The Pequod Review:
Camino Island features one of John Grisham’s better plots, as a group of professional thieves successfully steal five original F. Scott Fitzgerald manuscripts while a rare bookseller emerges as a possible fence. However, with the exception of the mildly intriguing bookseller, the book's characters are poorly developed and mostly indistinguishable from one another. And Grisham's prose (which has never been his strong suit) is especially lazy this time around, full of cliched lines and awkward syntax. It's a shame since another couple edits to the manuscript could have made this a decent thriller.
