Enchanting Justice!

Recently finished John Grisham's new book, The Innocent Man. It was riveting, as is usual for Mr. Grisham's legal thrillers. And fascinatingly, unlike his previous courtroom novels, this one is entirely a true story! The best thing about the story, in my opinion, is the overwhelmingly enchanting justice. "Enchanting Justice--what the *(@?^ is that?", you may ask. Well, I don't want to spoil the book for you. But there are *real* bad guys, who really hurt innocent people, and not only do they get their comeuppance big time in the story. They also get to have their names and their evil exposed in a book whose author sold 60 million copies of his books in the 1990's--that is to say, this book will probably hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list and hang out there for a while, and perhaps 10 million people are going to know all about the evil that the bad guys in this story did, and their real names, and where they live, and where they work! I find that enchanting--completely magical.
