This book had a first for a John Grisham novel: A side plot. As far as The Rainmaker goes, it isn't a killer plot, not even that suspenseful. The book starts off very good, but never really climaxed. It was about a girl named Kelly Riker whom Rudy slowly finds himself attracted to. The problem is: She is married to a spouse-abuser. However, it doesn't matter all that much - perhaps because the characters are easy to relate with. Additionally, Grisham's cynical outlook in this story is pretty on the mark with the law profession of our society.
