Sycamore Row by John Grisham

Grisham is back with another excellently written stunner. A smart, fast moving story about the legality of a Holographic Will. The sudden suicide of a family’s Patriarch and his twenty-four hour old, handwritten Will, have his family up in arms when it is revealed that he has left millions to his black maid. Jake Brigance and the, “Time to Kill”, original gang return with another southern, court room, roller coaster.

Jake Brigance is a handsome, lawyer who has a reputation for his ability to woo a jury. His mentor Lucien, a disbarred, alcoholic attorney and Harry Rex, a devious divorce attorney, all return for a second act in the ongoing saga of race equality during the early 80’s in Mississippi. Lawyers and family members start popping out of the woodwork when the dollar amount of the Will is revealed and then it is off to the races.

An original storyline that had the characters just jumping off the page. This is a must read for those of you that enjoy legal thrillers. A first rate narrative by Michael Beck mixed with an intensely emotional, surprise ending made this one of my favorites of the year.
