          Dealing with a Whopper of a problem

          Did you notice a lot of “Whoppers” in the goodie bag your trick-or-treater brought home? Or did you notice how many of those little candies were in the bag of treats you passed out?

                    Editor Don Whitten takes a look at best-selling author John Grisham’s just-released legal thriller, “The Racketeer,” a story about a jailed lawyer who fingers the killer of a federal judge to get out of prison and begin life in witness protection. It’s another page-turner, Whitten writes, and maybe one of the quickest reads of a Grisham work in several years. (October 26, 2012, Page 4A)
