|Author: John Grisham|
#1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER
From the Publisher:
In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm:
Twenty -six-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it all for a death-row killer and an impossible case.
Maximum Security Unit, Mississippi State Prison:
Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of chances -- except for one: the young, liberal Chicago lawyer who just happens to be his grandson.
While the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while the protesters gather and the TV cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes to save his client. For between the two men is a chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets -- including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's life... or cost Adam his.
From the Hardcover edition.
Sam Cahill, a former Klansman, has exhausted his appeals for his conviction in a fatal bombing in 1967. Only his grandson, lawyer Adam Hall, stands between him and the gas chamber. Hall has just days to uncover the one secret that could save Cahill's life--or cost Adam Hall his.
"Compelling...powerful...'The Chamber' will make readers think long and hard about the death penalty." Christian Science Monitor
"Provocative...gripping....All the elements that have made Grisham a successful writer are here: fine writing, believable characters, social comment, courtroom drama, and legal maneuvers a layman can figure out." Boston Globe
"'The Chamber' does grab hold and it doesn't let go. Part of its power comes from suspense....More of it comes from Grisham's unflinching gaze on the conditions in the Mississippi penitentiary."
