About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

John Grisham

Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby -- writing his first novel.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year and all of them have become bestsellers, leading Publishers Weekly to declare him "the bestselling novelist of the 90s'

Grisham lives with his wife Renee and their two children Ty and Shea. The family splits their time between their Victorian home on a farm in Mississippi and a plantation near Charlottesville, VA.



Synopsis of this title

Spellbinding, engrossing legal fiction from the world's number one bestselling author. Adam Hall is a young lawyer in a giant Chicago law firm. He volunteers hi9s services in one of the toughest assignments that any lawyer could take on-the defence of a convicted murderer on Mississippi's Death Row. His client is a seventy-year-old Sam Cayhall. Cayhall's crime was the killing of two Jewish children in a 1967 Klu Klux Klan bombing. Sam's appeals have nearly run their course and he prefers to argue the last of them alone. Despising lawyers and Northern liberals, he recently sacked Adam's law firm from the case, and there is little hope that he will hire the young man. But adam has a secret more potent than Sam's deepest prejudice, hitherto hidden in his own tortured past. A secret that will persuade the old man to hire Adam and allow him to investigate the murders. A secret which will bring the old racist and liberal lawyer together and forge an inseperable union between them, even to the gates of death. For Adam Hall is Sam's grandson; estranged for the last twenty six years of his life, Adam wants to find out what drove his father to suicide and destroyed his family. The answer lies with Sam, unrepentant and as prejudiced as the Old South. And in the answer, paradoxically, lies Adam's own salvation. John Grisham's four previous novels have all been number one bestsellers throughout the world. Film rights to The Chamber have been aquired for a Hollywood industry record.
