    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jake Brigance is back! The hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time, returns in a courtroom drama that The New York Times says is "riveting" and "suspenseful." 

    Clanton, Mississippi. 1990. Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for Drew Gamble, a timid sixteen-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance digs in and discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Jake’s fierce commitment to saving Drew from the gas chamber puts his career, his financial security, and the safety of his family on the line. 

    In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many listeners know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart. 

    Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet. 

    There is a time to kill and a time for justice. Now comes A Time for Mercy.

    Naja

    Hab so meine Zweifel, dass Grisham das selbst geschrieben hat. Hat sich eher wie Fliessbandarbeit eines Ghostwriters angehört. Generisch, vorraussehbar, wie zusammengepuzzelt aus Versatzstücken aus seinem riesigen Fundus. Keine Überraschungen, unerwarteten Wendungen oder echte Höhepunkte.
    Kein Vergleich mit ‚A time to kill‘!
    Sprecher ist gut aber man muss den SüdstaatenSprech mögen. Mir ist das zu sehr Redneck!
    Grisham kanns besser, viel besser!

    Grips your attention but doesn’t deliver

    I’ve read/listened to every book by John Grisham and was much looking forward to this one. As always the writing gripped me within a couple of sentences and I finished the 20-hour-audiobook in two days. So, why do I feel disappointed?
    It would not matter that I have read other stories about domestic violence and preemptive killings and children in danger of being crushed by a harsh justice system. It would not matter if there was an original angle to the plot, fascinating characters, good visuals. But the book comes across as routinely written, using ingredients that have worked well else-where. There is a bit of a pretense that we know some of the protagonists from former books, but that is no reason to make do with sketches about people, who do not come alive on the page.
    Strictly speaking the book does not even have an ending and I wondered if the rest of the plot is supposed to be revealed in another book.
    I admit that Grisham is better than many if not most writers of the genre, even with this book that I regard as one of his weakest. But he does not deliver anything groundbreaking any more, like The Firm or Pelican Brief, or Playing for Pizza, which was really original. To me it looks like he is fulfilling his contract with his editor but his heart is not in it any more. He has enough fans, like me, who will buy every book in the hope that it will be another one of the fascinating Grishams again.
    If this book will indeed have a sequel, I am not looking forward to it any more.
