1 Grisham, John A PAINTED HOUSE
Doubleday 2001 038550120X / 9780385501200 1st Edition Hardcover F/F 
A highly collectible first edition, tight clean copy, protected in a new br odart wrapper, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. Who needs lawyers? Not Grisham, in his captivating new novel, now between hardcovers after serialization in the Oxford American. Here there are hardscrabble farmers instead, and dirt-poor itinerant workers and a seven-year-old boy who grows up fast in a story as rich in conflict and incident as any previous Grisham and as nuanced as his very best.

A PAINTED HOUSE, Grisham, John
2 Grisham, John A PAINTED HOUSE
Bantam 2004 0385337930 / 9780385337939 Paperback Very Good 
Ever since he published The Firm in 1991, John Grisham has remained the und isputed champ of the legal thriller. With A Painted House, however, he stri kes out in a new direction. As the author is quick to note, this novel incl udes "not a single lawyer, dead or alive," and readers will search in vain for the kind of lowlife machinations that have been his stock-in-trade. Ins tead, Grisham has delivered a quieter, more contemplative story, set in rur al Arkansas in 1952. It's harvest time on the Chandler farm, and the family has hired a crew of migrant Mexicans and "hill people" to pick 80 acres of cotton. A certain camaraderie pervades this bucolic dream team. But it's b ackbreaking work, particularly for the 7-year-old narrator, Luke: "I would pick cotton, tearing the fluffy bolls from the stalks at a steady pace, stu ffing them into the heavy sack, afraid to look down the row and be reminded of how endless it was, afraid to slow down because someone would notice."

He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law J ournal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has trie d to forget.

And three former judges who call themselves The Brethren: one from Texas, o ne from California, and one from Mississippi.

And they spend hours hatching schemes to make money. Then one of their scams goes awry. It ensnares the wrong victim, an innocent on the outside, a man with dangerous friends, and The Brethren's days of quietly marking time are over. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

10 Grisham, John THE BRETHREN
Arrow Books Ltd 2007 0099280256 / 9780099280255 Paperback Very Good+ 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: John Grisham's novels have all been so systematically successful that it is easy to forget he is just one man toiling away silently with a pen, experi menting and improving with each book. While not as gifted a prose stylist a s Scott Turow, Grisham is among the best plotters in the thriller business, and he infuses his books with a moral valence and creative vision that set them apart from their peers. The Brethren is in many respects his most daring book yet. The novel grows from two separate subplots. In the first, three imprisoned ex-judges (the "brethren" in the title), frustrated by their loss of power and influence, concoct an elaborate blackmail scheme that preys on wealthy, closeted gay men. The second story traces the rise of presidential candidate Aaron Lake, a puppet essentially created by CIA director Teddy Maynard to fulfill Maynard's plans for restoring the power of his beleaguered agency.

Before he was sent to federal prison for treason (among other things), Joel Backman was an extremely powerful man. Known as "the broker," Backman was a high roller--a lawyer making $10 million a year who could "open any door in Washington." That is, until he tried to broker a deal selling access to the world's most powerful satellite surveillance system to the highest bidd er. When caught, Backman accepted prison as the one option that would keep him safe and alive, since the interested parties (the Israelis, the Saudis, the Russians, and the Chinese) were all itching to get their hands on his secrets at any cost. Little does he know that his own government has design s on accessing that information--or at least letting it die with him. Now, six years after his incarceration, the director of the CIA convinces a lame duck president to pardon Backman, and the broker becomes a free man--and a n open target.

14 Grisham, John THE CHAMBER
Doubleday 1994 0385424728 / 9780385424721 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A crisp clean first edition (as stated) no markings throughout, not an ex-l ib: The chamber in question is the gas chamber at the Mississippi State Penitentiary--and for 69-year-old Sam Crayhall, the road thence has been many years long. Sam was twice tried and twice acquitted for murder after a 1967 Ku Klux Klan scare bombing accidentally killed the twin sons of the intended target; 14 years later he was tried a third time, convicted and sentenced to death. Now, in 1990, a young Chicago lawyer, employed by the firm that represented Sam but which he has just unceremoniously dumped, wants Sam as a client. Adam Hall, the 26-year-old rookie, is Sam Crayhall's grandson. Adam's efforts to save this splendid curmudgeon from death form the center of Grisham's quietly compelling novel, a hub from which the far-reaching spokes of personal dramas extend. The despair of prison life has rarely been so grippingly evoked--no riots or dazzling escapes here, just a drab, pervasive dailiness. And the gradually revealed dysfunctions of the Crayhalls prove both surprising and affecting. This ranks as top-notch Grisham and reveals new dimensions to his talent: the focus on character, the credible emotion and the simple moments of human connection bear comparison to Grisham's work in A Time to Kill . The prose, too, has more subtlety and texture than Grisham has previously exhibited. Though the countdown to an execution is a well-worn plot device, it has seldom been as effective, especially in the novel's last 100 pages.

Dell 2012 0345532015 / 9780345532015 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the vein of Serial and Making a Murderer, John Grisham's first work of nonfiction will terrify anyone who believes i n the presumption of innocence. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, fil led with eleventh-hour drama, it's a book no American can afford to miss. In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Micke y Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broke n by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far f rom Ron's home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savage ly murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidenc e, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tri ed, and sentenced to death--in a trial littered with lying witnesses and ta inted evidence that would shatter a man's already broken life, and let a tr ue killer go free. Praise for The Innocent Man "Grisham has written both an American tragedy and his strongest legal thril ler yet, all the more gripping because it happens to be true."--Entertainme nt Weekly "Grisham has crafted a legal thriller every bit as suspenseful and fast-pac ed as his bestselling fiction."--The Boston Globe "A gritty, harrowing true-crime story."--Time "A triumph."--The Seattle Times
