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.

did not disappoint....narrator was great... grisham books never fail to intrigue me, frustrate and educate.
Yes. It's been awhile since my husband & I have read Grisham, & this was a terrific way to get back into his stories. It really is one of his best.
Great narrator! Does various voices well.
.Michael Beck is a true artist in his delivery and creation of the characters. Truly a pleasure to listen to doing justice to the superb story.
As I listened to this I had to wonder if John Grisham was paid by the word. This story could be completed in about 1/3 of the time and would be excellent. The early ramblings really did not contribute much to the story as illustrated by the fact that I fell asleep at times and was still able to keep up with the story without rewinding it.
This audio book was great. It takes place 3 years after the events in A Time to Kill. I could not stop listening until it was done. Just like all the great stories from John Grisham. Characters, intrigue and suspense. I highly recommend this audio book.
