And the verdict is in. A jury of readers bought Grisham’s latest story of legal misadventure. The Summons (2.8 million copies in print) debuts at No. 1 this week. Just in time, too, as Grisham’s more sweet-natured Skipping Christmas has dropped out of the fiction top 10. In the nonfiction neighborhood, Tom Clancy is back in the spotlight. Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces (400,845 copies in print) lands at No. 2. And David A. Vise’s story of alleged FBI spy Robert Philip Hanssen, The Bureau and the Mole, lurks in the shadows at No. 11. Will it reveal itself next week?
