A Time To Kill Paperback / softback

Description

_______________________________________THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLERJohn Grisham's first and most shocking novel, adapted as a film starring Samuel L.

Jackson and Matthew McConaugheyWhen Carl Lee Hailey guns down the violent racists who raped his ten-year-old daughter, the people of the small town of Clanton, Mississippi see it as justice done, and call for his acquittal. But when extremists outside Clanton - including the KKK - hear that a black man has killed two white men, they invade the town, determined to destroy anything and anyone that opposes their sense of justice.

A national media circus descends on Clanton. As tensions mount, Hailey hires the inexperienced Jake Brigance to defend him.

It's the kind of case that could make a young lawyer's career. But it's also the kind of case that could get a young lawyer killed. _______________________________________The original Jake Brigance novel.
