Author Info
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
"Mr. Grisham writes with rekindled vigor here. Perhaps that's because he hasn't mired this book in excessive research....[T]his author is no slacker. He has simply abandoned the legwork and gone back to what he does best, storytelling rather than crusading."
"The maestro of legal potboilers goes for devilishly Revenge-style thrills in his latest novel...."
"Bestseller Grisham...is back in top form with this twisty, precisely plotted legal thriller.... The surprises all work, and the action builds to a satisfying resolution."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fogletree just became number five. His body was found in the basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends.  When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies?Judge Fogletree and his young secretary. I did not know Judge Fogletree, but I know who killed him, and why.       I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. It's a long story.
