Ford County. The heart of the American deep South. A place of harsh beauty, of broken dreams and final wishes.
From legendary legal thriller author John Grisham comes a unique collection of stories connected by the life and crimes of Ford County, the setting of his iconic first novel A Time to Kill.
From a hard-drinking, downtrodden divorce lawyer looking for pay-dirt, to a manipulative death row inmate with one last plea, Ford County features a vivid cast of attorneys, crooks, hustlers, and convicts. From their stories emerges a rich picture of lives lived and lost in Mississippi.
Completely gripping, frequently moving and always entertaining, Ford County brims with the same page-turning quality and heart-stopping drama of his previous bestsellers.

This was my first audio book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Grisham's narration took me about ten minutes to get used to, and after two hours I found him addictive. 3 stars for the book, and 4 stars for those hours in the hammock, cigar and whiskey in hand, listening to Grisham carry me away to Ford County.
Have really enjoyed other John Grisham audio books however this one was not up to standard.
