#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A pillar of the community who towered over local law and politics for forty years, Judge Atlee is now a shadow of his former self--a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home in Clanton, Mississippi. Knowing that the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. Ray Atlee is the elder, a Virginia law professor, newly single, still enduring the aftershocks of a surprise divorce. Forrest is Ray's younger brother, the family's black sheep.

The summons is typed by the Judge himself, on his handsome old stationery, and gives the date and time for Ray and Forrest to appear in his study. Ray reluctantly heads south to his hometown, to the place he now prefers to avoid. But the family meeting does not take place. The Judge dies too soon, and in doing so leaves behind a shocking secret known only to Ray . . . and perhaps to someone else.

Synopsis:

For the first time since "A Time to Kill", Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi - a place rich in colourful characters and dark family secrets. This time he tells the story of a dying judge who leaves his dissolute sons three million dollars in used bank notes.

Synopsis:

New paperback from one of the world's bestselling authors, which sees him return to the legal thriller genre after a brief foray into the realms of mainstream fiction, with "The Painted House". He returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the seeting for his debut novel, "A Time To Kill" and tells a tale of dark family secrets. A surefire contender for the Number One slot in the paperback fiction bestsellers.
