#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A delightfully lighthearted caper . . . [a] fast-moving, entertaining tale.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist.
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets.

But soon Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise—as only John Grisham can deliver it.

Praise for Camino Island

“A happy lark [that] provides the pleasure of a leisurely jaunt periodically jolted into high gear, just for the fun and speed of it.”The New York Times Book Review

“Sheer catnip . . . [Grisham] reveals an amiable, sardonic edge here that makes Camino Island a most agreeable summer destination.”USA Today

“Fans will thrill with the classic chase and satisfying ending; and book lovers will wallow in ecstasy.”The Florida Times-Union


  • Great author but...

    By AlexisRed2
    Weakest ending imaginable! I have read many Grisham books before but they were completely riveting, this was more beach trash than a law drama. I liked the characters and the plot but the ending just was awful. Four stars for what could be and a nod to a great author!
  • Easy read

    By Corbin018
    Not a bad book at all. Enjoyed reading it. Got a little dry in the middle but overall solid book. Would recommend
  • Don’t bother

    J.G.. writes for old and insecure white men. Camino Winds is shallow. The characters are cheesy and predictable. The story is one long eye roll.
  • Just Terrible

    By localwally
    Total waste of time.
  • Too wordy

    Don’t read this trash that he probably wrote in one afternoon with a beer in hand. Much too chatty, story really flat and far fetched, didn’t get a little interesting until the last few chapters. Mr Grisham lost it. He’s written manny far better then this one.

    Not really up to club standards. Illogical plots. Boring. Struggled through half and gave up.
  • He phoned this one in

  • Camino Winds

    By Sheena77Blue
    By far the least favorite of Grisham’s books!
  • Not a page-turner

    By Faussie
    Meh, not much going on with this book. Kind of boring. Definitely not like the Grisham books I have loved in the past.
  • Lifelike etc

    Good characters and character building. Main story is very interesting and other stories were fit in neatly. Leaves some questions unanswered but yields overall satisfaction.
