John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier.

The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row?

In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

3.0 Nie ten czas
Grishama czytałem kiedyś namiętnie. Zaliczałem go do kategorii "gawędziarzy" – pisarzy, którzy niezależnie od tego, o czym piszą, potrafią zaciekawić samym sposobem snucia opowiadania. To było jednak ponad piętnaście lat temu, przez tyle lat człowiek potrafi się zmienić. Z pewnością zmieniłem się ja...

2.0 2/5: Sycamore Row
Jack Brigance – the main character of Grisham's own A Time to Kill – is back in court three years after that trial, this time with a will written under odd circumstances.One of the great strengths of Grisham's books is his ability to take something as dull as a disputed will and spin it for five hun...

3.5 Czas zapłaty
Kiedyś czytałam książki Grishama nałogowo. Potem trafiłam na kilka gorszych pozycji i moja fascynacja thrillerem prawniczym w jego wykonaniu lekko osłabła. Lata minęły i znowu z wielką przyjemnością wzięłam do ręki najnowszą powieść Johna Grishama. Z pełną odpowiedzialnością mogę stwierdzić, że jest...

4.0 Sycamore Row
I had read A Time to Kill quite some time back. Though Sycamore Row can be treated as a stand-alone, I was under the impression that it’s a continuation of A Time to Kill and loved this chance to pick it up again. There are quite a few returning characters and as such brushing up again would also be...
