Sy­camore Row

Friday - - Society Living Leisure -

Jake Bri­g­ance, who is now in­volved in the case of a lo­cal busi­ness­man, Seth Hub­bard, who has left most of his for­tune to his house­keeper, cut­ting out his chil­dren and his grand­chil­dren.

Charged with car­ry­ing out Hub­bard’s dy­ing wishes, Bri­g­ance has to fight off the best at­tempts of the fam­ily to re­gain their in­her­i­tance.

Like all good lawyers, Bri­g­ance saves the big­gest sur­prise to the very end of the trial, dig­ging deep into the sor­did his­tory of Amer­ica’s Deep South be­fore de­liv­er­ing the knock­out blow.

Gr­isham al­ready has le­gions of fans the world over, and Sy­camore Row is sure to win him even more.
