A Time to Kill:
The life of a 10-year-old black girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime, until her father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.
For 10 days, with burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spreading through the streets of Clanton, Mississippi, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jack Brigance struggles to save his client's life...and then his own.
The King of Torts:
When Clay Carter of the public defender's office reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit D.C. every week. But as he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles on a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life - that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts.

I can't say enough good things about Time to Kill. It picks up where Sycamore Row left off and is a truly gripping novel. Everything about it is superb except one character was left dangling.
The King of Torts is about unscrupulous attorneys who take advantage of the system and I hated the ending. No, not all endings need to be happily-ever-after but this one really rubbed me the wrong way. I know this stuff goes on but the entire book kept me upset and made me want to become a tort reform activist.
I received this audible edition for free for my honest review.. heart pounding and intriguing true James Patterson style. grabs you from the start and a double edition at that.. pretty much like the movie but I loved the book as well..
This is a great deal with 2 outstanding Grisham books together. Kept me going for over 600 miles of road trip. Worth every penny and a few more.
Great narrator, love his voice. I think this is a great story, job well done Mr. Grisome!!!
