Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book corners and edges. Some minor marks on book foredges.
Jake Brigance, the protagonist of John Grisham's classic legal thriller, A Time to Kill, is back. This time he's at the epicentre of a sensational murder trial that bitterly divides the citizens of Clanton, Mississippi.
Jake is the court-appointed lawyer for Drew Gamble, a young man accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance sees it another way. Once he learns the details of the case, he realizes he has to do everything he can to save Drew....who is sixteen. His commitment to the truth puts Jake's career and the safety of his family at risk.
Filled with all the courtroom machinations, small-town intrigues, and plot twists that have become hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy emphatically confirms John Grisham's reputation as America's favourite storyteller. (publisher blurb)
