In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details and the paper began to prosper. The murderer, Danny Padgitt was tried before a packed courthouse in Clanton, Mississippi. The trial came to a startling and dramatic end when he was found guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison, but in Mississippi, in 1970, "life" didn't necessarily mean "life" and nine years later Danny Padgitt managed to get himself paroled.

While not as compelling as A Time to Kill, and its story set in time prior to the period of ATTK, Grisham returns us to the fictional community of Clanton, Mississippi, where the story is told through the voice of a young local newspaper editor, Willie Traynor. He reprises a pair of attorney characters Lucien Wilbanks and Harry Rex Vonner featured in ATTK, and trial judge, Judge Noose. ( )

An interesting profile of small town, southern USA in the 1970's. As interesting as the story was, it was also very interesting to read of the legal and social structures of the times. This includes how many officials were elected and how that process could be corrupted. ( )

This was not a legal thriller in the usual Grisham mode. I found it rather bland, but kept reading so that I could learn whether my theory about the identity of the "last juror" was correct. It was not, and when they were identified, I wished for more detail about the background and motive of their actions. ( )

I haven't read a John Grisham book in many years, though I did read his novels fervently in my early teen years. This one has that comfortable Grisham readability, but no real intrigue or intensity. The plot just kind of hums along. Predictable and forgettable, kind of like a chill paddle boat ride.

Edit: I hadn't read the back cover or Goodreads summary before touching the book or leaving my review. If you DID have that info, I would say that book would go from "chill" to tedious. It's predictable without a plot pathway. ( )

It is not a legal thriller as the name might hint.

It is rather a chronicle of a young man's life and work as an editor of the county weekly neespaper.
The jurors, last or otherwise, don't even make an appearance until well into the second third of the story, and they don't stay long.

I wouldn't say it is a bad book, it's quite interesting in a way, but it is so much NOT what you'd expect it to be that it's hard not feel at least a little bit disappointed. ( )
