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.

    I like mysteries and female sleuths especially. Fantasy novels involving vampires, werewolves, witches, faries and elves are all favorites.

    "Literally nothing happens"

    You keep waiting for this story to get interesting...to take an unseen turn. It never happens. Total yawner. So slow.

    "Better than a time to kill"

    It was great. Both Brigance novels are my favorites and after ATTK I wasn't sure how this would be. The story was tremendous. The narration was very well acted.

    "not terrible, but way too long"

    I like courtroom drama as much as anyone, but this book was too long with way too many subplots. Even the denouement was overextended.
