Tuve tres familias, tres ex esposas que me dieron siete hijos, seis de los cuales siguen vivos y hacen todo lo que pueden para atormentarme. Que yo sepa, engendre a los siete y enterre a uno.

Sycamore Row

by John Grisham

John Grisham takes you back to where it all began . . . John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history. Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row? In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

El socio

by John Grisham

Espiaron cada uno de sus movimientos hasta obtener la seguridad absoluta de que era el. Se hacia llamar Danilo Silva y habitaba una modesta casa de un ciudad pequena de Brasil.

Es decir, no guardaba ninguna similitud con aquel abogado llamado Patrick Lanigan que, cuatro anos antes, se habia esfumado con noventa millones de dolares dejando atras a su hermosa mujer y a su adorable hija. Pero ellos estaban convencidos de que Danilo Silva era Lanigan, y de que con su captura pondrian fin a aquella historia. Grave error: en realidad acaba de emprezar.
