9780099134015: Time to Kill Paper If Available

When Carl Lee Hailey guns down the hoodlums who have raped his ten-year-old child, the people of Clanton see it as a crime of blood and call for his acquittal. But when extremists outside Clanton 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. Jake Brigance has been hired to defend Hailey. It's the kind of case that can make or break a young lawyer. But in the maelstrom of Clanton, it is also the kind of case that could get a young lawyer killed. "The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett, Evening Standard 'Grisham is a natural storyteller". (Daily Telegraph). "A giant of the thriller genre". (Time Out). "Leaves one eager for more". (Spectator).

Review:

With a chillingly calm, even delivery, Michael Beck, a regular Grisham reader (The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury), turns the narrative of this disturbing tale of racism, ignorance, and brutality into an almost visceral experience. "Cobb strung a length of quarter inch ski rope over a limb ... he grabbed her and put the noose around her head." The story is frighteningly believable and expertly crafted around a horrible crime and the tragic consequences that follow. At times, Beck's character voices can be distracting, but his efforts are generally applied to good effect, adding another level of tension to this already suspenseful look at a small Mississippi town's struggle for justice. (Running time: 17 hours, 12 cassettes) --George Laney

From the Publisher:

In this searing courtroom drama, best-selling author John Grisham probes the savage depths of racial violence... as he delivers a compelling tale of uncertain justice in a small southern town...

Clanton, Mississippi. The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young man. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle -- and takes justice into his own outraged hands.

For ten days, as burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spread through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client's life... and then his own...

"Grisham's pleasure in relating the Byzantine complexities of Clanton (Mississippi) politics is contagious and he tells a good story...An enjoyable book." -- Library Journal.

"Grisham excels!" -- Dallas Times Herald.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House UK | A town where murder follows justice | John Grisham's bestselling backlist newly repackaged with fantastic new covers | Tonya Hailey, ein zehnjähriges Mädchen, wurde von zwei betrunkenen Männern brutal vergewaltigt und mißbraucht. Wenige Tage später erschießt Tonyas Vater Carl Lee Hailey die beiden Täter im Gerichtsgebäude, in dem sie zu einer ersten Anhörung vorgeführt wurden. Das Gerichtsverfahren, daß gegen ihn eingeleitet wird, gerät zum Sensationsprozeß. Denn: die beiden Gewaltverbrecher sind Weiße; Carl Lee ist ein Schwarzer. Und der Ort der Handlung ist die Kleinstadt Clanton im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Mississippi, eine Gegend, in der ein Schwarzer noch heute damit rechnen muß, Nigger genannt zu werden. John Grisham schildert diesen Mordprozeß nicht nur aus der Perspektive des Gerichtssaals; er führt den Leser hinter die Kulissen, er deckt die inneren und äußeren Verflechtungen auf, die den Prozeßverlauf bestimmen. When Carl Lee Hailey guns down the monsters who have raped his ten-year-old child, the people of Clanton see it as a crime of blood and call for his acquittal.But when extremists outside Clanton 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.Jake Brigance has been hired to defend Hailey.
