Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The master of the legal thriller probes the savage depths of racial violence in this searing courtroom drama featuring the beloved Jake Brigance.

“John Grisham may well be the best American storyteller writing today.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

The life of a ten-year-old black girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless white men. The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Mississippi, reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime—until the girl’s father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own hands.

For ten days, as burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spread through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client’s life—and then his own.

Don’t miss John Grisham’s new book, THE EXCHANGE: AFTER THE FIRM!

Excellent Read

I loved the suspense involved in this book, John Grisham is a wonderful writer! Mississippi is one of the last states to look at Black people as less than White’s and Grisham’s book focuses on this concept, but you are able to see different. This is a wonderful book, and the movie was really great too, it touched on the whole concept of the book!
