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 many 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?

I loved the book, as I love all Grisham's books. I was hooked from the beginning and found it hard to put down. Most people know the book is a sequel of sorts to A Time To Kill, the same characters are back with a new case and every bit as intriguing. I was part of that jury listening to every word!! I hope Mr Grisham keeps pumping them out!
Another good legal novel from Grisham, yes maybe not the best one, but I still enjoyed it. Some of the main characters are also in A Time to Kill. You have a feeling what the climax will be, but it was put in a dramatic way that did not disappoint.
