It was a long time ago that I read Grisham's books A Time to Kill, and The King of Torts, but I've loved all of his books. He develops his stories slowly, but once I get drawn in, I can't stop reading them.
A few lol moments, a good book to listen to for a long drive. Not my fave Grisham, but definitely not the worst.

A time to kill use a lot of the n word. Other then that Grisham spins a great tail as usual.
A Time to Kill -- Grisham's first and best book. He should have stopped at one.
Ron Witmer
