A Time for Mercy (Jake Brigance, #3)A Time for Mercy by John Grisham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Grisham wrote book one to this series, A Time To Kill, I doubt that a sequel was in his mind – there were no pending threads to the plot. A Time For Mercy is far different, as there are many open directions for Grisham to continue this Jake Brigance story. So – if you opt to read this story, be prepared that it doesn’t completely end, and about a dozen directions are possible.

Plot. Jake is assigned the case of an indigent teen boy who is charged with the murder of an admired local police officer. The cop is the son of a good ol’ boys family of toughs.

Liked. John Grisham’s books are fun, page-turning legal thrillers. No sex, no objectionable language, nothing offensive.

Narration by Michael Beck is great – men, women, children, even curmudgeonly old people are great. About twenty hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released in October 2020 by Random House Audio.

Recommended.
