Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Thriller/Suspense, 2014

John Grisham takes you back to where it all began...

John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial - a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

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? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row?

In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly 25 years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, a note from the author will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending, the presentation of the brother's childhood memories


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I simply enjoyed the return of the element of intrigue and suspense that lasted throughout the entire story

    "Too long for a simple story"

    Storyline is simple, but the book is too long, more than 20 hours. Too much description of characters. At times I fell asleep or had to skip ahead.

    Michael Beck has done an awesome job of bringing each character to life with his voice variations.

    "No surprises here."

    Narrator was a bit over the top with the southern accents. The plot was predictable and very drawn out.

    "Absolutely love it!"

    Some books just don't seem to hold your attention, but this one kept me on edge. Even when, at the end, you really do believe you know what's coming, the way it is written is spellbinding.
