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.

    "Another awesome Grisham book"

    Always enjoy Grisham's books. This one is entertaining and engaging. How the pieces come together is somewhat predictable but you don't realize it until after the book is over.

    "another home run for Grisham"

    I have read everything Grisham has ever written and this is one of my favorites.I was unable to stop listening.I originally started the book so I would have something to listen to while running intending to only listen to it while I was exercising but I was unable to control myself and finished it in a few days.

    "Kept me entertained"

    I enjoyed the story and thought Michael Beck did an excellent job with the narration. I could actually see the characters in my minds eye. I love John Grisham. His detailed storytelling is seldom boring. Once I start one of his novels I find it hard to stop reading or listening until the end. Sycamore Row is definitely one of the best.

    I really enjoyed this story and how it tied into "A Time to Kill." I did not read that one just saw the movie so I have a visual on some of the characters.

    "Another gripping legal drama"

    A revisit to Grisham's scene of the crime. Keeps you listening for the next revelation that rescues the case from the hands of defeat.
