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?

  • Wow

    From Tink_Anne
    Loved it! I'm a big fan of JG books. My favourite and the most disturbing was A Time To Kill. John's stories touch on a lot of controversy , truth and fairness. You can identify with his characters . Thanks for such a great read. This I'd my 1st iPad book purchase Anne

    From Uhuru2012
    Grisham's winning formula has two key elements that serve to make otherwise boring legal dramas entertaining: Compelling subject matter (A Time to Kill) and dry humour (The Rainmaker). This book has neither. If you're a devotee you might enjoy it just because it's Grisham but judged at face value this book is a complete bore.

    From hollakrissy
    A lot of highs and lows for me. The end was sort of expected. I started to lose interest, a lot of irrelevant information.. Overall, it was okay!
