The decision to bomb the office of the radical Jew lawyer was reached with relative ease. (from the first line)

#1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER
In Chicago''s top law firm, a young lawyer stands on the brink of a brilliant career. Now twenty-six-year-old Adam Hall is risking it all for a death-row killer and an impossible case: Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman and unrepentant racist facing the death penalty for a fatal bombing in 1967. Cayhall has run out of chances--except for one: a determined lawyer who just happens to be his grandson.
While the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while the protesters gather, and while 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.

Author Bio
John Grisham
John Grisham woke up at 5:00 every morning for three years to complete his first novel, A TIME TO KILL. Working as a lawyer and a member of Mississippi's state legislature, Grisham published his debut thriller with a small and somewhat unknown publisher, receiving only local readership in his home state. He finally burst on to the national scene with his second novel, THE FIRM, a legal thriller that sold millions of copies and stayed on the New York Times best-seller list for 47 weeks. Shortly afterward, Grisham moved to Oxford, Mississippi, where he began working on a series of new legal thrillers, including THE PELICAN BRIEF and THE CLIENT, all of which became bestsellers and were subsequently made into successful films. Having graduated from the University of Mississippi in Oxford with a law degree in 1981, Grisham went on to base his popular thrillers on his experience as a specialist in criminal defense. His once-unknown debut, A TIME TO KILL, was made into a major motion picture in 1996.

Praise

USA Today
"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."
