John Grisham is a masterful and prolific storyteller best known for his courtroom dramas. But in his latest book, “Camino Island” (Doubleday/2017), Grisham breaks from the courtroom and brings readers into the underworld of rare and stolen books. 

The novel also carries readers to spots familiar to many North Carolinians, like the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and well-known restaurants that dot Franklin Street. Host Frank Stasio speaks with Grisham about releasing his 30th book and his decision to tour bookstores for the first time in 25 years.
