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.

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.

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??

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

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

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.

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.
