#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In 1970, Willie Traynor comes to Clanton, Mississippi, in a Triumph Spitfire and a fog of vague ambitions. Within a year, the twenty-three-year-old finds himself the owner of Ford County’s only newspaper, famous for its well-crafted obituaries. While the rest of America is in the grips of turmoil, Clanton lives on the edge of another age—until the brutal murder of a young mother rocks the town and thrusts Willie into the center of a storm.
Daring to report the true horrors of the crime, Willie makes as many friends as enemies in Clanton, and over the next decade he sometimes wonders how he got there in the first place. But he can never escape the crime that shattered his innocence or the criminal whose evil left an indelible stain. Because as the ghosts of the South’s past gather around Willie, as tension swirls around Clanton, men and women who served on a jury nine years ago are starting to die one by one—as a killer exacts the ultimate revenge.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

The Last Juror
I enjoyed the story. Not just the novel, but the stories within the novel. The respect with which Grisham treats his characters as well as his audience is unique. The unpleasantness in life is not belabored, it is simply stated without too much attention, just enough to be appropriate and descriptive. I hated to see this novel end, I could spend time reading about Willie's life and his dear friend, Miss Callie, for a few hundred more pages.
great read, loved everything about this story!
