Number-one best-selling 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, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed his pastor and friend, the Reverend Dexter Bell. As if the murder weren’t shocking enough, it was even more baffling that 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 every minute.

Although the book is a tad too long and digesses in WWII history for a bit too long, as well, it's a fine bit of work that sustains interest throughout. Unlike a lot of those who previously reviewed this book here I had no trouble getting through the 17.5 hours of listening without problem at all. In a Shakespearean sort of way, this book is a tragedy, a continuing descent into a set of problems the characters have to live through, suffer through and finally live with as the book comes to its very troubling and surprising ending. I'd never re-read it but i'm glad I had the chance to plow avidly through it this once.
