Read full description of the books:John Grisham a scris prima sa carte bazata pe un fapt real • o explorare a sistemului juridic dintr-un mic oras de provincie • care se dovedeste a fi cel mai bun thriller juridic al sau de pana acum.
In 1971, Ron Williamson, primul jucator ales din statul Oklahoma pentru Liga americana de baseball, pleaca din oraselul natal Ada, cu o multime de sperante si de vise de glorie. Sase ani mai tarziu, Williamson revine, cu visele sfaramate de un brat rupt si de obiceiuri proaste • bautura, droguri, femei. Viata lui ia o turnura si mai tragica in 1982, cand o chelnerita din Ada este rapita si ucisa. Timp de cinci ani politia nu este capabila sa rezolve crima, dar din motive necunoscute, banuielile cad asupra lui Ron Williamson si a prietenului sau,Dennis Fritz. In 1987, cei doi sunt acuzati de crima.
Fara sa aiba dovezi concrete, acuzarea si-a construit cazul pe date pseudostiintifice si pe marturia unor puscariasi. Dennis Fritz a fost gasit vinovat si a fost condamnat la inchisoare pe viata. Ron Williamson a fost condamnat la moarte.
Daca mai credeti ca in America esti nevinovat pana la dovedirea vinovatiei, aceasta carte va va soca. Daca mai credeti in pedeapsa cu moartea, aceasta carte va va tulbura profund. Iar daca mai credeti ca sistemul de justitie penala este corect, aceasta carte va va revolta.
„Nevinovatul lui Grisham este nu numai cel mai plin de forta thriller juridic scris pana acum, ci si analiza unei tragedii americane • cu atat mai impresionant, cu cat este, din nefericire, adevarat.” ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Read information about the author"Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novel.
Born on February 8, 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to a construction worker and a homemaker, John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. Realizing he didn't have the right stuff for a pro career, he shifted gears and majored in accounting at Mississippi State University. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade in Southaven, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. In 1983, he was elected to the state House of Representatives and served until 1990.
One day at the DeSoto County courthouse, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.
That might have put an end to Grisham's hobby. However, he had already begun his next book, and it would quickly turn that hobby into a new full-time career—and spark one of publishing's greatest success stories. The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a hotshot young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared. When he sold the film rights to The Firm to Paramount Pictures for $600,000, Grisham suddenly became a hot property among publishers, and book rights were bought by Doubleday. Spending 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, The Firm became the bestselling novel of 1991.
The successes of The Pelican Brief, which hit number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and The Client, which debuted at number one, confirmed Grisham's reputation as the master of the legal thriller. Grisham's success even renewed interest in A Time to Kill, which was republished in hardcover by Doubleday and then in paperback by Dell. This time around, it was a bestseller.
Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year (his other books are The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, The Chamber, The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury, The Partner, The Street Lawyer, The Testament, The Brethren, A Painted House, Skipping Christmas, The Summons, The King of Torts, Bleachers, The Last Juror, and The Broker) and all of them have become international bestsellers. There are currently over 225 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 29 languages. Nine of his novels have been turned into films (The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, The Chamber, A Painted House, The Runaway Jury, and Skipping Christmas), as was an original screenplay, The Gingerbread Man. The Innocent Man (October 2006) marks his first foray into non-fiction.
Grisham lives with his wife Renee and their two children Ty and Shea. The family splits their time between their Victorian home on a farm in Mississippi and a plantation near Charlottesville, VA.
Grisham took time off from writing for several months in 1996 to return, after a five-year hiatus, to the courtroom. He was honoring a commitment made before he had retired from the law to become a full-time writer: representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars. Preparing his case with the same passion and dedication as his books' protagonists, Grisham successfully argued his clients' case, earning them a jur
