Jake Brigance, the protagonist of A Time to Kill, John Grisham's classic legal thriller is back. This time he's at the epicenter of a sensational murder trial that bitterly divides the citizens of Clanton, Mississippi. A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. It established Jake as a classic American hero--a lawyer who seeks truth and justice at all costs, even when his life and reputation are on the line. Brigance returned in 2013's Sycamore Row, in which he once again found himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial. Now, in A Time for Mercy, Jake is the court-appointed lawyer for Drew Gamble, a young man accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance sees it another way. Once he learns the details of the case, he realizes he has to do everything he can to save Drew--who is sixteen. Jake's commitment to the truth puts his career and the safety of his family at risk. Filled with all the courtroom machinations, small-town intrigues, and plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy emphatically confirms John Grisham's reputation as America's favorite storyteller. There is a time to kill, a time for justice, and A TIME FOR MERCY.

From the spring of 1774 through the summer of 1776, colonial American struggled with the question of whether they should strive to maintain their liberties within the British Empire or declare the colonies as an independent republic. The burden of decision weighed heavily on the Americans, and even the chaos and heightened emotions induced by civil war did not goad them to rash or desperate action. However weighty the decision may have been for most Americans, it proved doubly so for the delegates of the colonies assembled in Philadelphia as the Continental Congress. For the formal and irrevocable resolution of the question of empire or independence fell to those delegates and not to the people at large. Given the monumental nature of the issue before them and the diversity of colonial America, it is not surprising that the delegates to Congress emphatically disagreed on the resolution of the issue. A Time to Rend is a new interpretation of the critical conflict that took place in the Continental Congress, and offers a new approach for analysis of that conflict. Professor Head focuses attention on the social context of the respective colonies and shows the relationship of the social context to the position taken by colonial delegations. By treating four colonial leaders in depth, the author also clarifies the nature of the dispute in the Congress and points out the variety of opinion on the meaning of independence for colonial Americans.
