Book Description

Oct. 22 2013
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 twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must read Nov. 7 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're a Grisham fan you will love this book. Another masterpiece of intrigue about the "Ole South" and the characters that define it. I got wrapped up in the plot and could not stop turning the pages until I was done!
Enjoy one of the best books of the season.

4.0 out of 5 stars None Nov. 14 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A good read with returning favorite characters, however I found it somewhat predictable. I was waiting for those twists & turns that never seemed to appear. Not quite the explosive ending I was hoping for but still an interesting story overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars To buy or not to buy March 5 2014
By SonoPicto TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Yes I know my review will be about the purchase more than the book itself. I was shopping at Chapters and came upon this book sat down and began reading. Fascinating was my first impression a book you don t want to put down. My Big issue is that chapters was charging 32$ + tax so I decided to wait and check Amazon.

Surprise it s only 16$ + tax that is quite a difference. We want to encourage libraries and book store but how much more are we ready to give , in this case it is too much. Likewise we don t want to encourage Billionaires like Wal-Maret but do we have a choice. That being said the book is excellent and the decision is yours where do you Buy??

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent masterpiece April 2 2014
Format:Hardcover
I loved this book - it was great entertainment by an author who provides an excellent story with believable players. He obviously did his homework to pull this story together (i.e. knowledge of litigation, history), but you never feel bogged down with things you don't understand. The subject matter could have been heavy, but it didn't feel as such. Just an all around well-told story that moved forward at a good pace to keep your attention. I felt like I had known these people by the time I finished the story. If you feel like an entertaining read that you can't put down, read this!

An amazing follow up to Grisham's first novel. As with the first book, this one captures the no so clean motives of this small town

3.0 out of 5 stars A Return to The South Dec 5 2013
By Jeffrey Swystun TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
It was great to pick up with the characters from A Time To Kill. Jake, Harry Rex, Ozzie, Lucien, and Carla are warm, comfortable and pleasingly familiar. It is three years after the case that cemented Jake's reputation as a skilled litigator. While his notoriety is strong, his bank account is weak. Such is the reality of small town lawyering. Then a case falls in his lap involving the will of a gentleman that has taken his own life.

We are then treated to a course on wills and estates as only Grisham can do. Nothing is straightforward and a part of The South's ugly past plays an important role. I thoroughly enjoyed the book until it moved into the courtroom. Then it became procedural. Most disappointing was the resolution that watered down the book's opening and premise. Still it entertains and moves at a great clip. Grisham always ensures that justice is done.
