Description

Jake Brigance is back! The hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time, returns in a courtroom drama that The New York Times says is "riveting" and "suspenseful."
  
Clanton, Mississippi. 1990. Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for Drew Gamble, a timid sixteen-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance digs in and discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Jake’s fierce commitment to saving Drew from the gas chamber puts his career, his financial security, and the safety of his family on the line.
 
In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many readers know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart.
 
Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.
 
There is a time to kill and a time for justice. Now comes A Time for Mercy.

    Short of the first 30 pages, this is the most boring book from John Grisham. Nothing heart pounding or page turning here. Very predictable. Frankly, you could skip entire chapters and lose nothing in the story. The story references the Carl Lee book entirely to much.
  • Loved the continue of Jake Brigance and Ford County

    The story was a quick read and it was fun the Carl Lee Hailey and Carla Brigance played such prominent support roles. I️ admit that it was hard to read without hearing the dialogue coming from Samuel L Jackson and Matthew McConaughey.

    This book was in no way, a symbolic return of Jake Brigance. SPOILER ALERT . . I really tired of hearing how broke he was. I really tired of the fillers with Lucien and Judge Noose. But more than anything, I was very disappointed with the ending. It either leaves the reader hanging, or maybe a future continuance of the story. Not happy I shelled out money for this.

    I haven’t read a Grisham book in a while. I don’t know what happened but he seemed to have lost his mojo. This book was different. I read the sample & was hooked. This is it. John Grisham is back & at his best. It’s been a long time coming & definitely worth the wait! Thank you for writing a book I didn’t want to stop reading. That had characters I cared about & a fantastic story. If you love “old” John Grisham this book is for you!
  • Good Read

    3.5/5 stars An enjoyable read and an interesting legal dilemma. Read it in a day. Nice to get reacquainted with the old characters. The book was not nearly as dramatic and plot twisting as “A Time to Kill”. Hal R
