He seemed incapable of creating such chaos, but much of what he saw below could be blamed on him. (from the first line)
When the Supreme Courts most liberal and most conservative justices are gunned down, law student Darby Shaw builds a case against a powerful suspect, whose threats send her underground. By the author of The Firm. 250,000 first printing. $500,000 ad/promo. Tour. *Author: Grisham, John *Publication Date: 2010/01/05 *Number of Pages: 482 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 4.25 *Height: 7.50
From the Publisher:
In suburban Georgetown, a killer’s Reeboks whisper on the floor of a posh home. In a seedy D.C. porno house, a patron is swiftly garroted to death. The next day America learns that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief.

To Darby Shaw it was no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the Washington establishment it’s political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder–a murder intended for her. Going underground, she finds that there is only one person–an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate–she can trust to help her piece together the deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of Louisiana and the White House’s inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is being engineered. For someone has read Darby’s brief–someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime.
Annotation:
John Grisham delivers a powerful, conspiratorial legal thriller with PELICAN BRIEF. When two Supreme Court Justices are killed within hours of each other, a young law student from New Orleans, Darby Shaw, decides that the answers to these assassinations could lie within the cases currently on docket for these judges. Her research strikes a nerve, and soon Darby finds herself in danger--as a witness to a crime that powerful individuals want dead and buried. Grisham's best-selling novel was made into a film starring Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington in 1993.
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.
