Synopsis

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Don’t miss an original essay by John Grisham in the back of the book.

John Grisham takes you back to where it all began. One of the most popular novels of our time, A Time to Kill established John Grisham as the master of the legal thriller. Now we return to Ford County as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension.
 
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 many 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?

Too predictable right from the beginning. Not up to the usual standards of other Grisham books. No suspense.

A great read in true Grisham Style. I loved revisiting Jake Brigance, Harry Rex Vonner and Judge Atlee and hope to be able to go back again someday.

Sycamore Row.
April 27th, 2015
I think Mr. Grisham writes a good story and one learns about the law in America. Sycamore Row was interesting because in bought out a lot of feelings that people still have. It was great that in the end it brought people together. You know there is only one race, and it is human. M. Fisher.

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.

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.
