Product Overview

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why?

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.
"If Grisham has made any innovation in the genre, it is that he concentrates even more exclusively on lawyers than do his rivals and imitators."
"He [Grisham] still makes the reader flip the pages at an Olympic Pace, but now he finds other ways, as he did in 'The Rainmaker', to move the story along without hysterical chases and things going bump in the night....The quieter Grisham still fascinates, as he deftly keeps the reader guessing about the mystery juror's identity and motive. Grisham tells an addictive tale that will have you hooked until the very last surprise."
"The story's suspense builds like that of a lengthening cigarette ash that refuses to drop off. And the plot's eventual outcome is far more entertaining than anything Mr. Grisham has done before."
From the Publisher
Annotation When a plaintiff sues a tobacco company for damages caused by smoking, the trial turns into a showdown between the tobacco industries and the largest personal injury firms in the country. Billions of dollars are at stake and each side is spending millions to insure victory. But even the most experienced trial watchers are confused when the jury begins behaving oddly and a mysterious woman named Marlee is the only person able to predict their behavior in advance. Who is controlling the jury, and what is their motive? Marlee is the only one with any answers, and she's not talking.
First Line The face of Nicholas Easter was slightly hidden by a display rack filled with slim cordless phones, and he was looking not directly at the hidden camera but somewhere off to the left, perhaps at a customer, or perhaps at a counter where a group of kids hovered over the latest electronic games from Asia.
