Waterstones Says

From the author of A Time to Kill, the third instalment in Grisham's series featuring defence lawyer Jake Brigance explores a chilling case of patricide and the police code of silence.

Jake Brigance, lawyer hero of A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row, is back, in his toughest case ever.

Can a killer ever be above the law?

Deputy Stuart Kofer is a protected man. Though he's turned his drunken rages on his girlfriend, Josie, and her children many times before, the police code of silence has always shielded him.

But one night he goes too far, leaving Josie for dead on the floor before passing out. Her son, sixteen-year-old Drew, knows he only has this one chance to save them. He picks up a gun and takes the law into his own hands.

In Clanton, Mississippi, there is no one more hated than a cop killer - but a cop killer's defence lawyer comes close. Jake Brigance doesn't want this impossible case but he's the only one with enough experience to defend the boy.

As the trial begins, it seems there is only one outcome: the gas chamber for Drew. But, as the town of Clanton discovers once again, when Jake Brigance takes on an impossible case, anything is possible ...

MEDIA REVIEWS

a master of plotting and pacing . . . suspenseful - New York Times

A new Grisham legal thriller is always an event, but this one is exceptional as the author is returning to Jake Brigance, the hero of his very first book, A Time To Kill . . . There is a lot of Grisham in Brigance - they were both street lawyers on the side of the people, not big corporations. It gives the book an emotional core that burns with a white heat - Daily Mail

Grisham, as always, delivers legal suspense in spades - Irish Independent

Grisham has the knack of lighting a slow-burning fuse that has readers gasping for the coming big bang of courthouse fireworks - Peterborough Telegraph

classic Grisham - Irish Examiner

“Back where it all started - wonderful!”

John Grisham can do no wrong in my eyes - after reading 32 of his books. For the third time Jake Brigance (surely aka John Grisham) takes centre stage as our hero, surrounded by the characters of Clanton. Time for... More

“Back on Track”

In my last review, I was of the opinion that John Grisham had lost his way. That is no longer the case. Brigance is back, and how, A time for Mercy ranks alongside his very best. This latest is full of twists and... More

“One of John Grisham's best works”

One of the more pleasant problems associated with a book written by John Grisham is how does one indicate that it goes beyond a normal 5 star score. The only thing to do frankly is finish it in the normal one very... More
