'No one does it better than Grisham' - Telegraph

A father's guilt. A son's redemption.

Thirty years have passed since eleven-year-old Paul Tracy watched his troubled father, Warren, a pitcher for the New York Mets, clash with his childhood hero, the Cubs' golden-boy Joe Castle, in a contest from which no winners emerged.

Now the news that his father is dying brings the memory of that day flooding back. Deciding that it's time to face up to what really happened on that baseball field in 1973, father and son make their way to Calico Rock, Arkansas, where either redemption or rejection awaits them.


THE INNOCENT MAN by John Grisham is now a major six-part documentary series on Netflix

Not the usual

Not the usual legal book, but a really enjoyable read. Thoroughly recommended

If I was going to spend £7.99 on this book

I would like an intro to the actual story, not a précis of the game of baseball.
Sorry Mr Grisham, I've thoroughly enjoyed your novels over the years, but I won't be buying this one. Intro's like this are actually driving me back to the book store, and also to the charity shops, where last weeks best seller is this weeks £1 bargain.

It's a shame you can't donate an ebook, in the same way you can a real, old fashioned paper book..
