Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm:

Twenty-six-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink    of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it    all for a death-row killer and an impossible case.   

Maximum Security Unit, Mississippi State    Prison:

Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman    and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty    for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of    chances — except for one: the young, liberal Chicago    lawyer who just happens to be his grandson. While    the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while    the protesters gather and the TV    cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes    to save his client. For between the two men is a    chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets --    including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's    life...or cost Adam his.

" A dark and    thoughtful tale pulsing wit moral uncertainties...    Grisham is at his best."     --People.

" Compelling... Powerful...    The Chamber will make readers think    long and hard about the death penalty." --    USA Today.

" His best    yet." — The Houston Post.   

" Mesmerizing... with an authority and    originality... and with a grasp of literary    complexity that makes Scott Turow's novels pale by    comparison — Grisham returns." — San    Francisco Chronicle.

Synopsis:

The author of the number-one bestsellers The Firm, The Pelican Brief and The Client has written another spellbinding tale of legal intrigue sure to hit bestseller lists this summer. Twenty-two years after the bombing deaths of a civil rights activist's two sons, the Klansman on death row for their murders is mysteriously aided in his last appeal by a young lawyer in a major firm. But why?
