Fight them, Mr Brigance. To the bitter end. We must prevail. 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 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.

I'm sorry to say I nearly gave up on this wonderful story very early on because I thought "this is not me, it's more suitable fog my wife!" His wrong I was and how glad I was I did not give up.
The twist and turns and weaved stories within the story were crafted so well.
Is it a "Who done it?" Yes and no - not in the genre of murder mystery. Simply much better.
I highly recommend this book and the 'voices' .
