A Time for Mercy John Grisham Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jake Brigance is back! The hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time, returns in a courtroom drama that The New York Times says is "riveting" and "suspenseful."
Clanton, Mississippi. 1990. Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for Drew Gamble, a timid sixteen-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance digs in and discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Jake’s fierce commitment to saving Drew from the gas chamber puts his career, his financial security, and the safety of his family on the line.
In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many readers know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart.
Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.
There is a time to kill and a time for justice. Now comes A Time for Mercy.

A Time for Mercy
By like his books
Another book impossible to put down. A typical John Grisham book absolutely. Can’t wait to start the next one. I have read every one of his books. If you like reading his are the ones to read.
DO NOT READ THIS BOOKGreat book until terrible ending
This well written character portrait has all the Grisham excellence. Until it simply doesn’t end. The story just abruptly stops. No conclusion, not even a saved by the Gods! Just nothing.as if they forgot the final chapter.
I am Grisham fan, have loved all his books. I wish I never started this book. If you are a Grisham fan, you will feel as if you got a gut punch in the end. The book is so excellent, instructive, sensitive, multiple plot lines, and then? NOTHING. This book is writer malpractice, if will tear your heart out in a nasty way.
Hard to believe Grisham wrote this
The narrative repeats itself ad nauseam as if the publisher only cared about word count. The name Carl Lee Bailey is used so many times one could easily forget who the actual defendant in this story is. Tedious and only marginally entertaining.
A Time For Mercy
This book is another book that follows Jake Brigance. First time we saw him was in" A Time to Kill.” I found myself enjoying this book. I felt that I was fully into the plot and the characters. It ended on a high-note, but I felt that the ending was possibly a lead-in to another book. I like John Grisham’ novels. I highly recommend this book.
A Question To Ponder
A very interesting question sets the tone very nicely
By Doc HIF
Was a great read until it petered out at the end. Like the author did not know how to wrap the whole thing up. It just sort of faded away with no surprises. I was hoping for more
One of the best books I’ve read this year! Must read.
The book kept me interested until the end. The ending was anticipated. I judge a book is good when after done reading, I wonder what happened next to the characters. I wonder happening to these characters.
Absolutely a great read.
A fantastic read. Many of Grisham’s books are great and keep you on edge throughout. This did no disappoint. Anxiously awaiting the next publishing.
