Description

Free Download A Time for Mercy Ebook. Jake Brigance is back! The hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time, returns in a courtroom drama that The New York Times says is "riveting" and "suspenseful."
  
Clanton, Mississippi. 1990. Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for Drew Gamble, a timid sixteen-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance digs in and discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Jake’s fierce commitment to saving Drew from the gas chamber puts his career, his financial security, and the safety of his family on the line.
 
In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many readers know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart.
 
Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.
 
There is a time to kill and a time for justice. Now comes A Time for Mercy.

    I loved the book and couldn’t put it down. I always love these characters and have read all of Grisham novels. All of his characters are alive and speaking the truth.
  • Perfect Sequel

    “A Time to Kill” is one of my favorite John Grisham books, with a controversial crime and outcome. Jake Brigance finds himself in another impossible situation, and like the true professional he is, handles it brilliantly.
  • Good Read, but went off trail at times

    I didn’t like it, I LOVED IT! Did not like the occasional jumping to other seemingly less relevant cases, but that is a miner complaint on a good book
  • A great read

    A great read but a perfectly predictable ending. Much more character development and detail into the topic of housing, food insecurity along with poverty and abuse then I expected. A timely novel as many are facing these challenges.
  • Best in years...

    Loved nearly everything about this book: Jake is back, more of Carla, a new brilliant young Black woman is mentored by Jake; Harry Rex and Lucian return; and Noose reigns over the circuit. A tender and heartbreaking beginning to what is sure to be another book. His best in several years.

    Took a bit to get into. Probably a bit long but generally pretty good.
  • Amazing

    Just like a fine wine, you want to savor every last page in this book. Every character becomes personal and familiar. I have read every JG book and he never disappoints. Unlike other writers who seem to have sold out to make a dollar, Grisham seems to write for the pleasure of his audience. Can’t wait till the next one.
  • Disappointing

    It was a good read until the end. Very disappointing. I was waiting for a resolution or a twist or a revelation. Anything. It’s like he had no interest in making a compelling ending. He just wrapped up loose ends with expected bland outcomes.
  • The worst Grisham book so far

    The action stops soon after the beginning. It resumes at the trial and then stops again. The characters are not living their lives, they are acting good. Even bad people are acting good. You’ll get more life, drama and the fight between good and evil - up to the Supreme Court! - in some documentary books, like License to Lie by Sidney Powell. How could the good writer have written a book that is duller than real life?
