(HODDER & ST OUGHT ON)
Pete Banning is a model citizen, patriach, and World War Two hero of Clanton, Mississippi. So why, shortly after his return home in 1946, does he wake up one morning and calmly drive to the town’s methodist church, where he shoots and kills the reverend, Dexter Bell? When put on trial Pete’s only statement is he has ‘nothing to say’. Even with a defense attorney trying to save him, Pete’s willing to take his motive to the grave. Another page-turner from thriller author Grisham.
