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.

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.
Michael Beck couldn't have read this any better - just brilliant.
Not particularly. I like to enjoy the suspense and look forward to the next listen when I walk my dog.
You will not be disappointed.
Listening to a book read by a good reader takes me back to the art of story telling.
I already did recommend it. Tight, involving as Time to Kill. That book was my introduction to Grisham's writing. He returns to that familiar scene with another emotional story. I really liked it!
All were beautifully fleshed out.
What a well written book. Great character development and story line.
The ending as he brought all the pieces together. I could not turn off my iTouch. Listened from start to finish. WOW
Great. New to me but liked him very much!
Yes the ending was emotional
Great book, great writing, great narration and fantastic ending.
I really enjoyed this story, and rarely put 5* for the story itself. Yet I believe this one is worth it in every way. There were no points in the story where it "dragged on", and this one was really hard to put away. I couldn't wait to get back to it.
Very interesting story, and how it twists along, and keeping you guessing. I enjoyed the characters, and how this story was smoothly laid out. I would highly recommend.
The plot was not well thought out as most of his books are.
never wrote it.
the whole book
