Synopsis

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 himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier.

The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known 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.

Sycamore Row is all the things I like in a John Grisham book. . I wasnt sure what to expect after The Racketeer. That was just bad. It seemed like it had been hastily slapped together by a writer with a contractual obligation and no enthusiasm. I always think of Grisham novels, along with graphically outlining the current ills of this country, as being about the Romance of Money. Theres always this huge pile at stake and usually wire transfers to the Cayman Islandswho will get ithow will they spend itwill they accept it at all. By the end we **** well know where every penny went and why. But its fun and you carehis writing puts you right in the room, hoping against hope the hero is going to pull it all off somehow. And by the end you hope all his salty old sidekicks manage to pull themselves together too. Just once though Id like to see one of his saintly elderly black women be the bad guy. Just to be fair.
