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.

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!

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.

A really interesting courtroom drama. I've read all of Grisham's books and this one didn't disappoint! Well worth the read!

I enjoyed this book more than I had expected to. I've not read Grisham for a while as many of his recent books have just been disappointing reads, but I did buy this one and enjoyed it. Following small town Mississippi lawyer Jake Brigance from "A Time to Kill", Grisham tells the story of a man, Seth Hubbard and his wills. Seth is a rich and dying old man, seemingly friendless and estranged from his family, who plans his death down to the last detail, including a new will which disinherits his children and grandchildren and leaves the bulk of his money to his black housekeeper. Back in Mississippi in the 80's, this was scandalous behaviour. After Seth hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Jake receives the new will in the mail with explicit instructions for him to enforce his wishes and fend off his family. The trial and the discoveries is what is interesting in this book. I also loved the character studies...of the lawyers and judge involved in the case, the housekeeper Lettie and her family including all the "relatives" and "friends" who crawl out of the woodwork at the hint of money to be had, Seth's entitled and embattled children, the racism that is behind the behaviour of most everybody. An interesting book to read.

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.

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

I appreciate the opening pages of Grishams novel..the newest read Sycamore Road and we are back in familiar territorry..i found the previous book..one of his best..as he illustrates the nature of racism..and the city politics..of Ford County..and city mayors..you love or hate em..or and independent of them..you are wealthy or have some position..like a best selling author? You captivate the publics mood..Calico Joe..Calico Joe..Playing for Pizza..football and baseball were brief respites..and i read his books too..one about tobacco..the medical industry..I try to find time for more..so there is something about a writer who appeals too many different persons..like santa picking things in his bag..to appeal to the red haired black haired..or those when they smile and have rosy cheeks..their face and dimples..and there are usually few people for the distressed in Grisham's novels..in courts..they have problems..deal with the abysnal...the absurd..or like SEth..with a biblical type name
a wealthy personage..gives it all up..as mon the first page.."hanging oneself from a tree.."

A cross of sorts..and here like ancient PERSIA the christian symbolism at christmas...its not here..just death and
those left behind whom he cared for..the descendents..thats our STORY..we have a hand written note, will it be
acceptable..and does the state have a right to say..yes this will is legal is the wishes of the deceased..or its
not legit..not accepted..and thats the story..maintaining the wishes..HUNG..as so many are hung these days
trying to synchronize our lives from point a to e..to n..to Z..and at z we imagine we are happier..all that gold
will make us as happy as a wall street..derivatives hawker..if not we feel hung..and people feel most hung at
christmas..a break..
