Michael Henry did an awesome job with the twists and turns in the plot of At Random.

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.

The first book by Michael Henry for me was Atmosphere of Violence. I loved it so much that I had to get the books that went before because I had become connected to his characters. I recommend that you buy all of Henry's books and especially the latest one, The Election. This author writes with knowledge and total comfort with his characters and subjects. He is destined for the Big Screen!

Brilliant!! The amazing legal thriller continues from "Three Bad Years," as Willie Mitchell Banks, the tough prosecutor from "the most southern place on earth" (Mississippi Delta), is faced with prosecuting a hard-core drug dealer and terrorist for murdering one of the town's most upstanding sheriff deputies. "El Moro" works for a Mexican drug cartel, which has been sought out after by the U.S. government for some time. There is a battle between the U.S. government and Banks' office over proper jurisdiction for El Moro. This is a serious page turner and the writer knows just how to end each chapter leaving you with the desire to read on.

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!

Willie Mitchell Banks' town of Sunshine, in the heart of the Delta, seems like a quiet place to sit on a front porch with a cool drink or take an evening walk. At least until a murderous drug cartel threatens the Yaloquena County town and all hell breaks loose.

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.

Mike and William Henry have created some very strong, lovable characters. So easy to get involved in their lives because we identify with them. Thank goodness, I haven't had their drama, but the fun of it is that I could. Even ordinary people can have extraordinary lives.

This was one of the best books I've read in the last decade. It's better than any John Grisham novel by far. The characters are familiar to anyone who has spent time in the South. You'll be surprised at the way it turns out but I guarantee you will LOVE it!

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.
