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.

Grisham does a great job of keeping the reader engaged throughout what could be a rather dull process in will judgement. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down.

Being a fan of A Time to Kill, I was excited for Sycamore Row. Grisham did not disappoint taking us back to the south inside the courthouse with Jake Brigance, Harry Rex and the drunken Lucien Wilbanks. Fingers crossed that this too makes it to the big screen.

It's good returning
October 4th, 2014
When I saw that this book returned to Clanton and Jake and Carla I was eager to dig in. Unlike the explosive first chapter of "A Time to Kill," "Sycamore Row" moves slowly like a hot Southern day. Grisham carefully paints a picture of the small town South and the people who inhabit it. The broad outline of the plot is predictable but it's unfolding is fascinating. I savored every page.
