Considered the master of legal fiction, John Grisham, a former criminal defense and personal injury attorney, is the author of 32 novels, one work of nonfiction, a collection of stories, and six novels for young readers. His bestsellers include A Time to Kill, The Firm, and The Pelican Brief. There are more than 300 million Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 29 languages. In his latest novel, The Reckoning (Doubleday), a decorated WWII hero kills his pastor, triggering a story that ranges from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the courtroom where a killer’s defense attorney will try desperately to save him.
