BBAW giveaway #3 (Us only)

Friday, September 18, 2009

The third item that I'm giving away today is a trade paperback edition of John Grisham's The last Juror. The book is gently used, and in great condition. I haven't read this one yet, but I loved John Grisham's novels when I was in high school, so he holds a little piece of my heart.




Since I haven't read this book myself, here is the summary from Amazon.com:

In 1970, small town newspaper The Clanton Times went belly up. With financial assistance from a rich relative, it's purchased by 23-year-old Willie Traynor, formerly the paper's cub reporter. Soon afterward, his new business receives the readership boost it needs thanks to his editorial efforts and coverage of a particularly brutal rape and murder committed by the scion of the town's reclusive bootlegger family. Rather than shy from reporting on the subsequent open-and-shut trial (those who oppose the Padgitt family tend to turn up dead in the area's swampland), Traynor launches a crusade to ensure the unrepentant murderer is brought to justice. When a guilty verdict is returned, the town is relieved to find the Padgitt family's grip on the town did not sway the jury, though Danny Padgitt is sentenced to life in prison rather than death. But, when Padgitt is released after serving less than a decade in jail and members of the jury are murdered, Clanton once again finds itself at the mercy of its renegade family.

John Grisham writes books that just suck me in and make me want to read the whole thing at once. It's been a long time since I've read one of his books and this looks great.
Thanks for the giveaway.

I'd really like to win this one because I haven't read any of his books but I want to (and I have family members who do read his books so it would get very borrowed) :)

I'd like to read it because - this is odd - it's horrible that jury members are dying, but I am thinking the chase to stop further murders is going to be as exciting as all his other books are!
