Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • John Grisham returns to the iconic setting of his first novel, A Time to Kill, as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension.

“Welcome back, Jake. . . . [Brigance] is one of the most fully developed and engaging characters in all of Grisham’s novels.”—USA Today

A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

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 far 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?

In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

Another great Grisham story. The history of the south in the mid 1900’s is a stain on America and he tells it in such detail and craft. Excellent listen.

Terribly written book. Written at a 4th grade level. If your used to reading good literature, then you will be very disappointed in this book. The narration is very monotone. I cannot believe this book has received such good reviews.

Another Grisham home run. A very intriguing story that leaves you wanting to know what comes next. Beck's narrative is excellent. He is comfortable to listen to and his use of varying characters makes the story come to life.

John Grisham can make the mundane sound exciting. Add to that the fact that the plot is really intriguing and gripping, and you have the makings of an awesome read. And Michael Beck's narration brings it all to life in all it's magnificence. A great read, especially if you like legal thrillers and remember Jake Brigance from "A Time to Kill". Highly recommended.
