The Reckoning

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

#1 bestselling author John Grisham’s The Reckoning is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.
 
“A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga…The Reckoning is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer. Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case.”
USA Today
 
 October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi

Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s 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, and committed a shocking crime.  Pete's 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 Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him. 

Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, The Reckoning would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.

Customer Reviews

Worst book I’ve ever read

I love Grisham’s books...big fan, however, this book was tiresomely long and written poorly. I read chapter after chapter without the story moving on....I had the ending figured out in the beginning. Don’t waste your money. My advice is to wait until your library has this book or buy a used version.

Enjoyed it

Living on Amelia Island I enjoy and have read all your books

Can’t wait to see the “ an Innocent Man “ starting on Netflix

Ron Tomlinson

P.S.my ex-brother in law is in Allentown State Prison for murdering a Truck Driver. Claims to also be an innocent man. It’s quite a story.

Terrible

I’ve read all Grisham’s books. I was patient through the last couple. This is it. I’m done. No more! Jack
