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.

Two very good books, however the two are unrelated easy to lose track as it is a very long file. Voice acting is fine, the story is absolutely fascinating. King of torts is a great read, it is quite detailed and probably drags on more than it should but fun all the way, time to kill is a timeless classic
Loved listening to these 2 great books. A Time to kill is a classic for me. Having seen the movie I still enjoyed listening to the story unfold. King of Tortes was good as well, although the story wasn't quit as suspenseful.
Great Narration, love John Grisham. double books are the best for the price. Would deff buy again!
A Time to Kill - The storyline touches on some classic civil rights/race issues that in some areas are still relevant. I always enjoy John Grisham's exploration of the legal system and this book does not let me down. Michael Beck brings the story to life with great narrative.
Tossed between Jake Brigance and Lucien Wilbanks. I think I can relate more to Jake but love and admire Lucien for his crusty personality and disregard for the establishment.
Not yet, but I will now:)
Not necessarily but I certainly looked forward to picking up the book to continue the story.
Two books in one audio is always a bit of pain because you can't tell how long is left to the end of the first book. The second book The King of Torts starts at chapter 45.
A Time to Kill was performed with excellence and the story is classic Grisham. King of Torts was performed well but I was not so impressed with the story.
Story was good, but a little preachy. Narrator was good, but sound quality was patchy in some places. There was a spot in the middle of the book where the sound got scratchy and inaudible. I rewound to make sure my headphones weren't being weird, and no, it's bad audio. Most of the book is fine, though.
both stories are quite entertaining and worth your listening time. John Grisham and Michael Beck combined equal hours of satisfaction... yes satisfaction. this is the second time I have listened to the king of torts and first for time to kill. I loved both stories and their delivery. you must listen to both. just do it. don't think. just listen.
