Suspenseful tale about a small Mississippi town which is tormented by a murderer in the 1970's. A little predictable, but entertaining and filled with interesting characters. This is the second novel by Grisham that I have read and I am eager to read more.

This was my second John Grisham book and I could hardly put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed the outsiders insight on a small southern town. The mystery was a little too slick in the end, but I still thought it was a great read. I do have one bone to pick though - the book is set in Mississippi, but Grisham says that one of the characters grows vidalia onions in her garden. Well, that is impossible. Vidalia onions ONLY grow in and around Vidalia, Georgia. It is the soil that gives the onions their unique and wonderful flavor. You can't grow Vidalia onions in Miss.

Really good Grisham fare. It's about a small southern town newspaper publisher trying to cope with a brutal local murder. Now, nine years later the jurors are starting to die one by one. It's the publisher's goal to figure things out.
