Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before The Firm and The Pelican Brief made him a superstar, John Grisham wrote this riveting story of retribution and justice — now available in a premium 20th anniversary edition!

The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Mississippi, reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.

For ten days, as burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spread through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client's life — and then his own.

Review:
