A sequel to A TIME TO KILL

He will make them pay . . .

Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man's suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left ninety per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid.

The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both.

AS the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard's death:

What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang?

Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row?

And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, 'no human should ever see'?

    Page turner from the start! Could not put it down.
  • Thought provoking

    I was immersed in a different world, watching people so far removed from now, yet eerily unchanged. John Grisham has an amazing facility for creating mind pictures with words.

    Great reading, sometimes too many characters and legal jargon, but the gist of the story was there. Compelling read !
  • Grisham does it again

    Author John Grisham has matured in his style of writing. There is the usual courtroom drama, a riveting narrative that keeps you turning pages, yet this Grisham story has more emotional depth, a pathos that adds warmth and dimension to many of the characters and to the story itself. The only weakness is in the shallow depiction of the patronising relationship 'Jake' has with his own wife and daughter. It's rare to find an author who can take their tried and true format and develop it in a way that reflects the writer's own maturity. I really liked this story. A very satisfying read.

    A wonderful read - couldn't put it down! Would make a great movie with great characters and a surprising climax. Linda Kelly, Queensland, Australia.

    Long, drawn out, boring and disappointing making it a chore to read. It was a reminder of why I stopped reading his novels.
  • Sycamore Row, another John Grisham masterpiece.

    Wow. As I finish this gripping novel, dry a few tears from my eyes and take a drink of water, I thank heaven that we have such a fine author still writing today. There is nothing more that needs to be said. Now THAT is a short closing statement, Mr Brigance.

    Once again Jake Brigance, a mediocre small town lawyer whose ego is greater than his wallet gets lucky. This was a pretty formulaic read with an expected happy outcome....maybe it should be re titled "the simple lucky lawyer"
