Publisher's Summary

Two from the master of the legal thriller:

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.

    Story
    "Terrific!"
    If you could sum up A Time to Kill & The King of Torts in three words, what would they be?

    Worth a read


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lawyer in A Time to Kill


    What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

    His ability to voice different characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they set the father free in A Time to Kill


    Any additional comments?

    Of all of Grisham's books, I think King of Torts is my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, it's a good book. I just didn't like it as well.

    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book because I was really interested in listening to A Time To Kill. I like most of his books. A Time to Kill was great. A King of Torts not so much. So I guess you win some and lose some.

    "Classics- BOTH"

    Big fan always of John Grisham. Love both stories. Plan to re-read ... very soon. Of course, picturing Mathew McConaughey as Jake and Carter helped with the Audible versions of both books!!! What can I say... I'm a sucker for the southern boy!!!

    "Good Story but With a Weak Ending"

    The book has a nice start and gets you glued to it for the most part but the ending, the last few chapters, are horrible.

    "The good and the bad"

    I REALLY enjoyed "A time to kill". Excellent story, but "The king of torts" was only okay. I found the story to be drawn out. Really glad I was able to get both books at one time.

    "Meh..."

    Wasn't a great book, for me anyways. Clay, the attorney, deserved what he got. I'll stick with the John Grisham books that are set in Ford County Mississippi.

    "I thought I would like this more"

    I recently listened to an attorney/law novel that I enjoyed, so I figured John Grisham was a good bet. If you are ok with A LOT of detail and a storyline that drags on, then you'll probably like it. I got bored quite a bit. I had to increase the speed to double time just to get through it. I debated not even finishing the second one, because I didn't care enough about the protagonist or the story to want any more. But I finished it. Meh. Mediocre.
