Waterstones Says

A trio of gripping legal stories from the bestselling author of The Judge's List that features old favourite Jake Brigance alongside compelling new characters and engaging, unputdownable plotlines.

Three thrilling stories of the law from the master of the legal thriller.

Homecoming takes us back to Ford County, the fictional setting of many of John Grisham's unforgettable stories. Jake Brigance is back, but he's not in the courtroom. He's called upon to help an old friend, Mack Stafford, a former lawyer in Clanton who three years earlier became a local legend when he stole some money from his clients, divorced his wife, filed for bankruptcy, and left his family in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again. Until now. Now Mack is back and he's leaning on his old pals, Jake and Harry Rex, to help him return. His homecoming does not go as planned.

In Strawberry Moon, we meet Cody Wallace, a young death row inmate only three hours away from execution. His lawyers can't save him, the courts slam the door, and the Governor says no to a last minute request for clemency. As the clock ticks down, Cody has only one final request.

The Sparring Partners are the Malloy brothers, Kirk and Rusty, two successful young lawyers who inherited a once prosperous firm when its founder, their father, was sent to prison. Kirk and Rusty loathe one another, and speak to each other only when necessary. As the firm disintegrates, the fiasco falls into the lap of Diantha Bradshaw, the only person the partners trust. Can she save the Malloys, or does she take a stand for the first time and try to save herself?

“Typical Grisham”

Enjoyable. 3 short stories. Always want more though. Why not expand them into 3 good sized books? Feel a bit short changed!
All have potential to be great individual books.

“Not a usual gripping Lawyer read”

My fault - I pre-ordered and only read the inside front cover for the first paragraph before ordering, not appreciating that the book contains three shorter stories and not knowing this I was expecting them to tie... More
