In the long-awaited successor to the novel that launched his phenomenal career, John Grisham brings us the powerful sequel to A Time to Kill. As filled with page-turning twists as it is with legal mastery, Sycamore Row proves beyond doubt that John Grisham is in a league of his own. 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'?

Autorenporträt
John Grisham wurde am 8. Februar 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, geboren. Er studierte in Mississippi und ließ sich 1981 als Anwalt nieder. Der Aufsehen erregende Fall einer vergewaltigten Minderjährigen beeindruckte ihn nachhaltig und brachte ihn zum Schreiben. In Früh- und Nachtschichten wurde daraus sein erster Thriller, "Die Jury", der in einem kleinen, unabhängigen Verlag erschien - der Beginn einer beispiellosen Erfolgsgeschichte. 2007 erhielt John Grisham den "Lifetime Achievement Award".
Rezensionen
The Litigators is a thrilling romp through the murky world of lawsuits and shysters - rich and poor. Packed with [Grisham's] signature twists and turns, not to mention lots of double-dealing, be careful if you're reading The Litigators on the bus, you may just miss your stop'
