9780099537076: The Chamber

Adam Hill is in his first year at a top Chicago law firm. He volunteers for the toughest assignment any lawyer could ask for. His prospective client doesn't want Adam or his law firm. He is an unrepentent and outspoken racist with a violent past. He is on Death Row for the murder of two Jewish children in a horrific bombing in 1967.

Why would he take on Adam, a complete novice, to defend him? And why would Adam want his case so desperately? The answer lies in the past, in a twenty-year-old secret buried in the madness of another time. . .

Review:

At first listen, the narration of this abridged version of John Grisham's The Chamber seems flat and uninvolved. But Michael Beck has chosen his vocal style well, purposely eschewing unnecessary adornment and allowing this searing indictment of racism and murder to unfold on its own terms. Beck uses character voices sparingly, adding subtle emphasis to the already charged plot. The story begins with a Klan-sponsored bombing and then traces a trail of rigged acquittals stretching over three decades, until a young lawyer with secrets of his own brings the case to a powerful conclusion. -- George Laney Amazon.com

Review:

" A first-rate thriller" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"His stories are ferociously plot-driven: they will keep you awake all night" ( Independent on Sunday)

" Compelling... after 50 pages I could barely wait to turn the rest over... Grisham knows how to tell a story" ( Sunday Times)

" Totally hypnotic . . . scenes unfold and unfold and you can't stop reading" ( The Washington Post)

"A dark and thoughtful tale pulsing with moral uncertainties . . . Grisham is at his best" ( People)
