In suburban Georgetown, a killer’s Reeboks whisper on the floor of a posh home. In a seedy D.C. porno house, a patron is swiftly garroted to death. The next day America learns that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief.
To Darby Shaw it was no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the Washington establishment it’s political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder–a murder intended for her. Going underground, she finds that there is only one person–an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate–she can trust to help her piece together the deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of Louisiana and the White House’s inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is being engineered. For someone has read Darby’s brief–someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime.

Definitely one book you'll want to read, and as always the case....it's way better than the movie!!
don't let this one get away.
Well, what can i say? Only what I can say. And hopefully this one will NOT be removed like the others. The Pelican Brief was the third novel by John Grisham I had read, and it's my personal favorite. Darby Shaw is quick and sharp, and she does not treat her own life like some game of truth-or-dare. I honestly tried to focus as much on Gray Grantham, the investigate reporter, but Darby herself was a bit easier to acknowledge. Now don't get any ideas. I still enjoyed his resourcefulness and his ability to work with people he knows and does not know. the film is all right and all, but pages first, screen later.
Wonderfull page turner must read
