Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary: Chapter 1 On a wooded settlement in Clanton, Ford County, the practicalities and implications of Seth Hubbard's hanging are contemplated. He had an aggressive lung cancer and, despite two expensive divorces, he had kept possession of the timber-laden estate left to him by his father. Seth's farm-hand, Calvin Boggs, has been ordered to meet Seth at 2.00pm at an isolated bridge, to which Calvin drives with his young son. Calvin realises that Seth is hanging from a sycamore tree and calls the county sheriff. The deputies mark the area around the tree as a crime scene, but once Calvin is taken to Seth's home he discovers a note left by Seth stating that he has taken his own life and requests that there be no autopsy. Ozzie Wall, a black sheriff, recounts his memories of Seth offering to bankroll his election campaigns in cash, as the coroner and deputies take Seth's body down from the tree. Ozzie decides to further investigate Mr. Hubbard's background. Chapter 2 Jake Brigance wakes at 5.30am to fulfil his routine of getting up, heading the coffee-shop, and then onto his office. He ponders over his static career and weighs up his ambitions to become a great trial lawyer. He recounts that his best case was three years ago in the 'Hailey trial'. However, the victory in court came at the price of his Victorian home being burned down by the Ku Klux Klan and losing the family dog in the fire. Now living in a 'flimsy' house, paid-for by his insurance company, Jake kisses goodbye to his wife and daughter and contemplates the 9mm pistol he now carries in his briefcase. He recalls how only four out of a dozen of the terrorists who were involved in the harassment of Jake, and those around him, have been given sentences. Ozzie Wall keeps a deputy, Louis Tuck, outside of the Brigance home every morning for protection against any possible terrorist threat. At the coffee shop Jake talks to Deputy Marshall Prather about Seth Hubbard and wonders about Hubbard's last will and testament. Dell, the gossiping waitress, lets on that Seth Hubbard was found hanged. Jake then contemplates his rival lawyers as he walks to his office and arrives for 7.00am.

Summary : Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man's suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left ninety per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid. The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both. AS the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard's death: What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang? Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row? And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, 'no human should ever see'? In the long-awaited successor to the novel that launched his phenomenal career, John Grisham brings us the powerful sequel to A Time to Kill. As filled with page-turning twists as it is with legal mastery, Sycamore Row proves beyond doubt that John Grisham is in a league of his own.

Summary : In this instant #1 New York Times bestseller, John Grisham delivers a classic legal thriller—with a twist. “Terrific…affecting…Grisham has done it again.”—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post “A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes.”—Associated Press In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence. But no one was listening. He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister. Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time. Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated. They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

Summary : Lee Child recruits Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Ames, Cara Black, and others to reveal nicotine's scintillating alter egos. "Typically for Akashic--publisher of the terrific Noir series--the stories approach the subject matter from an impressive number of angles...Akashic has yet to produce a dull anthology, and this one is especially good." --Booklist "Sixteen tributes to America's guiltiest pleasure...Even confirmed anti-smokers will find something to savor." --Kirkus Reviews "The most successful entries delve bone-deep into addiction, as characters smoke to smother physical pain, loneliness, and their days...These writers capture the mental gymnastics behind the characters' bad decisions, and the joy such bad decisions can bring." --Publishers Weekly In recent years, nicotine has become as verboten as many hard drugs. The literary styles in this volume are as varied as the moral quandaries herein, and the authors have successfully unleashed their incandescent imaginations on the subject matter, fashioning an immensely addictive collection. Featuring brand-new stories by: Lee Child, Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Ames, Eric Bogosian, Achy Obejas, Michael Imperioli, Hannah Tinti, Ariel Gore, Bernice L. McFadden, Cara Black, Christopher Sorrentino, David L. Ulin, Jerry Stahl, Lauren Sanders, Peter Kimani, and Robert Arellano. From the introduction by Lee Child: Food scientists have discovered a complex compound naturally present in, among other things, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. The compound offers us a number of benefits: it improves our fine motor skills; it increases our attention spans; it improves our cognitive abilities; it improves our long- and short-term memories; it lessens depression...In and of itself, it has no real downside. It's called nicotine. We should all get some. The problem is the delivery system...The most efficient way is to burn dried tobacco leaves and inhale the smoke. Ten seconds later, the compound is in your brain, doing good in all its various ways. Unfortunately, the rest of the smoke doesn't do good. And therein lies a great mystery of human behavior. To get the good, we risk the bad. Or we prohibit ourselves the good, for fear of the bad. Which approach makes more sense?
