    The Summons: Once Judge Atlee was a powerful figure in Clanton, Mississippi. Now the judge is a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home. Knowing the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. The Brethren: They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. In prison these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich, very fast.

    Michael says: "Great Performance"

    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?

    Would you listen to Sycamore Row again? Why?

    Yes, Its just that good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sycamore Row?

    The ending.


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked the narration of the book I think the southern accent was manufactured but enjoyed it none the less. I have heard worse narrations of Grishams books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Pay me and Ill tell you.
