This is a Grisham book you don't want to pass on. In the 90's I loved reading his early works- The Firm, A Time to Kill, and The Pelican Brief, but slowly his books seemed to lose their luster. They've always been enjoyable to read, but not like his early writings I fell in love with.
In Sycamore Row Grisham goes back to Clanton, Mississippi, the scene of A Time to Kill, and reconnects us with Jake Brigance, the struggling lawyer made famous by the Carl Lee Haley trial. His new case immediately takes on a David vs. Goliath feel which emotionally pulls the audience into the story like the best books do. The characters are very well developed, and as the story progresses it will be harder and harder to remove your headphones and rejoin the real world.
This book is John Grisham at his best. I will be recommending it to everyone I know. This is one of those rare times I wish audible could give me a six-star option.

Ive always enjoyed the compelling storeytelling of John Grisham but have been unimpressed with his last few novels.
Sycamore Row is classic Grisham that delivers strong character development, descriptive subplots, twists and unforseen turns.
I was very pleased to see he returned his readers to Clanton, Mississippi a few years after the Carl Lee Haley trial. Ive always wanted a follow up to that novel and now we have one.
As always, Michael Beck gives a solid narration!
