The multi-million copy best-selling thriller that introduced Jake Brigance to Clanton and inspired a sequel, Sycamore Row.
When Carl Lee Hailey guns down the hoodlums who have raped his 10-year-old daughter, the people of Clanton see it as a crime of blood and call for his acquittal. But when extremists outside Clanton hear that a black man has killed two white men, they invade the town, determined to destroy anything and anyone that opposes their sense of justice. Jake Brigance has been hired to defend Hailey. It's the kind of case that can make or break a young lawyer. But in the maelstrom of Clanton, it is also the kind of case that could get a young lawyer killed.

You'll love this if you hate bigotry..
The attempted justice of Carl Lee Hailey by the lawyer defending him and the hypocrisy of the people that were claiming to try and help him.
Without a doubt, the story itself, from start to finish.
He explains the plot of the story in a way that compels you to keep listening to the story.
Absolutely nothing. The narrator was brilliant.
If you despise racism and bigotry, you will love this book and without giving too much away, you will LOVE the way the story ends. This has to be one of John Grisham's best. Highly recommended read!
