Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Grisham Continues to Excel"
    What made the experience of listening to Sycamore Row the most enjoyable?

    I have listened to all of Grisham's books and they are all good with some being better than others. I felt this was one of his best books and many plot twists and turns.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Beck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Michael Beck couldn't have read this any better - just brilliant.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly. I like to enjoy the suspense and look forward to the next listen when I walk my dog.


    Any additional comments?

    You will not be disappointed.

    "Grisham? Really??"

    Well written but very weak story. Certainly not vintage Grisham, I'm afraid! Nothing new here.

    "Race, Greed, Atonement, and Equality"

    Mississippi produces some of the best writers. I read The Pelican Brief as required reading for a Mississippi Writers class and have not read another Grisham novel since. It was entertaining, and the reader did a great job.

    "not bad, not exceptional"

    I love Grisham but this is not one of my favorites. there's a classic Grisham twist but its in the last couple chapters. its unfortunately a bit dull until that point. Voice performance is a bit dry as well.

    "Edge of my seat!"

    i listened to the entire novel in one day! Grisham has a way of telling a story that keeps you guessing the entire way through. There were moments of laughter, overwhelming sadness amd joy. I would definitely reccommend to a friend.
