The Pelican Brief (Paperback)John Grisham (author)
- 5+ in stock
Two Supreme Court Justices are dead, their murders unsolved.
But one woman might have found the answer - if she can live to tell it.
Darby Shaw is a brilliant New Orleans legal student with a sharp political mind. For her own amusement, she draws up a legal brief showing how the judges might have been murdered for political reasons, and shows it to her professor. He shows it to his friend, an FBI lawyer.
Then the professor dies in a car bombing.
And Darby realises that her brief, which pointed to a vast presidential conspiracy, might be right. Someone is intent on silencing Darby for good - somebody who will stop at nothing to preserve the secrets of the Pelican Brief...

“Thrilling and Still Pertinent”
This was my first time reading John Grisham and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I did start with this better known title but I haven't seen the film so the whole thing was still mysterious for me. As with all... More
Great story, well told, and without some of the tendentiousness which some of Grisham's books can lapse into.
