John Grisham takes you back to where it all began . . .

John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung

cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himselffrom a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new,handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adultchildren, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict asriveting and dramatic as the murder trial that madeBrigance one of Ford County's most notoriouscitizens, just three years earlier.

The second will raises far more questions than itanswers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of hisfortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy andpainkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And

what does it all have to do with a piece of land onceknown as Sycamore Row? In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill

Review: Sycamore Row (Jake Brigance #2)

User Review  - Courtney - Goodreads

I watched "A Time To Kill" on the plane to Istanbul, so when the SF Public Library recommended Sycamore Row as an e-book the synchronicity was too good to pass up. Not as good as other Grisham vacation reads I've enjoyed, but it got the job done. Read full review
