Willie Mitchell Banks is now my favorite character in a book. He is fit, strong, intelligent, and holds to his beliefs. Willie Mitchell is definitely a solid 3D character. It is almost as if he could step out of the book and shake your hand..Of course the rest of the characters are well-rounded out as well. Willie Mitchell is just my favorite.
The book is set mainly in Mississippi...maybe that is part of the reason I love it. Almost nobody uses Mississippi as a setting. Other places in At Random are parts of Louisiana, and Memphis, Tennessee. The descriptions of these places are 'spot on' and this Mississippi girl should know. Of course, Michael Henry is a native of Louisiana and now resides in Mississippi so he wouldn't have any difficulty uses these settings.
The story begins with El Moro handling a huge drug deal in the Louisiana swamps. As El Moro heads for Memphis, he has a car accident with none other than some sheriff's deputies in Jackson, Mississippi. When the accident happens.....the trunk of his vehicle pops open and money begins to fly everywhere. This is where we find out El Moro has five million dollars in his trunk from the drug deal.
El Moro sustains a head injury in the accident, but doesn't want to be caught with all that money flying around so he runs... high-jacks a car and keeps going..but with the head injury he runs off the road and this is where he ends up killing a deputy sheriff in another town in Mississippi.
It only gets better and better from this point on. We meet Willie Mitchell's son, Jake and Agent Dunne along with several other characters. Some I loved....others like the "Professor" I hated....even more than El Moro.Read more ›
The electrifying conclusion leads to what will "hopefully" be a series of great thrillers by this author, as well as box-office hits. Cannot wait to see these characters come alive on the big screen. Lost a night of sleep because I just could not lay it down. Better than some of Grisham's latest stuff!! Highly recommended!
This second thriller about District Attorney Banks, his long-suffering wife, and Assistant U.S. Attorney son involves a terrorist plot, crooked lawyers, a car crash scattering money to the wind, and a modicum of romance.
Available in paperback and e-book formats, the novels of this Natchez writer and his co-writer son William Henry have been favorably compared to those of fellow Mississippian John Grisham. If At Random is an indication of the Henrys' page-turning excitement, I'd say they're poised to give the serious crime novelists a good run. For certain, Michael Henry is a writer to watch.

I started reading it around midnight and skipped a night of sleep to finish it. Can't wait till this is made into a movie.
