  • A Time for Mercy : John Grisham’s Latest No. 1 Bestseller (Hardcover)

     

    Jake Brigance, lawyer hero of A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row, is back, in his toughest case ever.

    ‘A new Grisham legal thriller is always an event, but this one is exceptional as the author is returning to Jake Brigance, the hero of his very first book, A Time To Kill . . . There is a lot of Grisham in Brigance – they were both street lawyers on the side of the people, not big corporations. It gives the book an emotional core that burns with a white heat’ – Daily Mail

    ‘A master of plotting and pacing . . . suspenseful’ – New York Times

    CAN A KILLER EVER BE ABOVE THE LAW?

    Deputy Stuart Kofer is a protected man. Though he’s turned his drunken rages on his girlfriend, Josie, and her children many times before, the police code of silence has always shielded him.

    But one night he goes too far, leaving Josie for dead on the floor before passing out. Her son, sixteen-year-old Drew, knows he only has this one chance to save them. He picks up a gun and takes the law into his own hands.

    In Clanton, Mississippi, there is no one more hated than a cop killer – but a cop killer’s defence lawyer comes close. Jake Brigance doesn’t want this impossible case but he’s the only one with enough experience to defend the boy.

    As the trial begins, it seems there is only one outcome: the gas chamber for Drew. But, as the town of Clanton discovers once again, when Jake Brigance takes on an impossible case, anything is possible …

    Starring the same hero and setting that featured in John Grisham’s multi-million-selling bestsellers A Time to Kill (adapted as a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Matthew McConaughey) and Sycamore Row, A Time for Mercy is an unforgettable thriller you won’t be able to put down.

  • One Hot Wynter’s Night (English Bad Boys Series) Paperback

    Attraction. Deception. Capture.

    With an empty bank account and a teetering pile of unopened bills, Maggie Matthews is not only out of money…she’s out of options. Against her better judgement, she accepts her best friend’s offer to make some fast cash. Her mission? To join a group of journalists who are attempting to crash a masked ball, being held at the residence of the notorious Sir Kristoff de Wynter.

    A well-known ladies man, Kristoff is a powerful businessman who takes no prisoners, either professionally or privately. Rich, ruthless, drop-dead gorgeous and exceptionally used to getting his own way, he is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Unable to resist the bewitching Maggie, Kristoff unleashes the full power of his well-honed seduction techniques, in a persuasive bid to entice her into bed. In so doing, he immediately provokes her fighting spirit, ensuring that sparks are destined to fly. But how will he react upon learning the real reason for Maggie’s presence at his party? And what on earth will he demand as payback, for her deceptive actions?

    One night in December 1972, Jean McConville, a mother of ten, was abducted from her home in Belfast and never seen alive again. Her disappearance would haunt her orphaned children, the perpetrators of the brutal crime and a whole society in Northern Ireland for decades.

    Through the unsolved case of Jean McConville’s abduction, Patrick Radden Keefe tells the larger story of the Troubles, investigating Dolours Price, the first woman to join the IRA, who bombed the Old Bailey; Gerry Adams, the politician who helped end the fighting but denied his IRA past; and Brendan Hughes, an IRA commander who broke their code of silence. A gripping story forensically reported, Say Nothing explores the extremes people will go to for an ideal, and the way societies mend – or don’t – after long and bloody conflict.

  • The Innocent Man : Murder and Injustice in a Small Town

     

    In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron’s home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death–in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man’s already broken life…and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, John Grisham’s first work of nonfiction reads like a page-turning legal thriller. It is a book that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence–a book no American can afford to miss.
