#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • "A dark and thoughtful tale... Grisham is at his best." —People

In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm: Twenty -six-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it all for a death-row killer and an impossible case.

Maximum Security Unit, Mississippi State Prison: Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of chances -- except for one: the young, liberal Chicago lawyer who just happens to be his grandson.

While the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while the protesters gather and the TV cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes to save his client. For between the two men is a chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets -- including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's life... or cost Adam his.

I love This Book

I have loved this book since before I could remember. This is Grisham at his best. Also watch the Movie, Gene Hackman plays a great Sam Cayhall. And if you like this book I would suggest 'A Time To Kill' as your next book to read.

One of his Best

I first read this when I was in seventh grade, and it was my first John Grisham book that I read. It made me really think about the death penalty, and the KKK and how society is much different from how it was in the 1950's. Because of this book, I read John Grisham's other books, and now I have read almost everyone. If you've never read John Grisham, and you want to, I suggest starting with this one.
