Book Companion

October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi. Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime. Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: I have nothing to say. He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave. Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, The Reckoning would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.

Characters: 99. Amazon rating: 3 1/2 stars. Genre: Suspense - Thriller.
