Description

He will make them pay

A sequel to A TIME TO KILL.

Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man's suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left ninety per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid.

The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both.

AS the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard's death:

What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang?

Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row?

And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, 'no human should ever see'?

    Interesting book with historical racial issues of rural America. Very typical Grisham book, albeit with fewer surprises.
  • Great sequel

    The sequel to "A Time to Kill" is gripping and transports you to the Deep South like so many other Grisham books. Great read on holiday

    It was always going to be cathartic. The chance (finally) to read another chapter of Jake’s life. And it is good but its not Grisham good. More like putting on comfortable shoes as opposed to the whole outfit. On the one hand its a credit to one of the greats; to criticise this book when it is actually quite good but while it is good and it satisfies, there are better Grishams and I think even he will agree, he has done better. That being said, a 3 star Grisham is a 5 star for 99% of the rest. So…. read it; enjoy it and try some more.

    I love John Grisham novels, they tend to grip you from page one. This was no exception. I still wasn't sure how it would end, until the last chapter. Totally enjoyable- would highly recommend. A. Fan.
