Jake Brigance appeals for justice once more

Bestselling author John Grisham's latest novel, Sycamore Row, marks a return to familiar territory and reacquaints us with one of his most memorable characters.

For almost 25 years, A Time to Kill has captivated readers with its raw exploration of race, retribution and justice. Now its hero, Jake Brigance, returns to the courtroom in a dramatic showdown as Ford County again confronts its tortured history. Filled with the intrigue and plot twists that are the hallmarks of America’s favorite storyteller, Sycamore Row is the story of the elusive search for justice in a small Southern town.

Hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "about as good a storyteller as we've got," Grisham proves he's still master of the legal thriller.


Five years after retiring from law to become a full-time writer, John Grisham returned to the courtroom to honor a commitment he made years earlier: representing the family of a railroad brakeman who died on the job. Grisham won the case.
