#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • John Grisham returns to the iconic setting of his first novel, A Time to Kill, as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension.
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.
I enjoyed the first while of it but the audio file became corrupted. And now it just continually blinks through the three different sections without making it sound. It's really disappointing because the book was very good.
At what point in time, is iTunes going to recognize that either a refund or a re-download should be allowed if a book does not download properly the first time. Especially at these prices!
Like the book, DOES NOT WORK.
The audio book does not work. I paid $29.95 for it and downloaded it on my iPhone 4S. The audio file is corrupted and would not play.
I synced my phone with my Macbook Pro, and the file would not play on iTunes there. Customer service told me to delete that file and re-download it. STILL did not work. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY, not because of John Grisham - but because Apple can’t figure out audiobooks for iOS 7.
