Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For almost a quarter of a century, John Grisham’s A TIME TO KILL has captivated readers with its raw exploration of race, retribution, and justice. Now, its hero, Jake Brigance, returns to the courtroom in a dramatic showdown as Ford County again confronts its tortured history. Filled with the intrigue, suspense and plot twists that are the hallmarks of America’s favorite storyteller, SYCAMORE ROW is the thrilling story of the elusive search for justice in a small Southern town.

Review:

"Narrator Beck turns in a fine performance in this audio version of Grisham's outstanding sequel to the classic courtroom drama A Time to Kill. It's 1988 and Clayton, Miss — based lawyer Jake Brigance receives a handwritten will from the recently deceased Seth Hubbard that leaves the majority of his estate — roughly $20 million — to his African-American maid, thus disinheriting his own children. Along with the will is a letter from Hubbard instructing Brigance to defend his last wishes at all costs. With millions on the line, the Hubbard family aggressively contests the old man's will, throwing Brigance into a trial full of twists and turns. Beck's gentle accented reading skillfully captures the old-world, Southern tone of Grisham's novel. Beck also keeps the story moving at a good pace and infuses each character with a distinctive regional voice. A Doubleday hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The suspense never rests when A Time to Kill's Jake Brigance fights the good fight once again.

Often named an all-time favorite by John Grisham's legions of fans, the book that started it all gets a brand-new chapter. America's favorite storyteller returns to Ford County, Mississippi, where defense attorney Jake Brigance will have to fight for justice in a trial that could tear the small town of Clanton apart.
