Resumen del libro

Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippis 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, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed his pastor and friend, the Reverend Dexter Bell. As if the murder werent shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Petes 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.

In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Petes defense attorney tries desperately to save him.
