A gripping courtroom drama about a young girl whose life has been shattered by 2 drunken and remorseless young men. Her father decides to take matters into his own hands with an assault rifle. A town then is in flames and on different sides.
An interesting book with twists and turns.
A young father seeks revenge for the brutal attack on his daughter. The trial that follows and the events surrounding the trial keep you reading to the last page. Very thought provoking book.
This addictive tale of a young lawyer defending a black Vietnam war hero who kills the white druggies who raped his child in tiny Clanton, Mississippi, is John Grisham's first novel, and his favorite of his first six. He polished it for three years and every detail shines like pebbles at the bottom of a swift, sunlit stream. Grisham is a born legal storyteller and his dialogue is pitch perfect.
This one will get you ALL riled up and rooting for the main character. A great read, and one of Grisham's best.
racial tension and the brillant author has again hit upon subjects and characters that keep us guessing.
