John Grisham - A Time to Kill
There are crimes of blood, and there are crimes which are... just crimes. The people of Clanton, Mississippi, have no doubt as to which is which when Carl Lee Hailey guns down the hoodlums who have raped his ten-year-old child.
There are crimes of race and creed and colour. And so when people outside of Clanton hear that a black man has killed two whites, the town is filled with an angry mob determined to tear down, burn and destroy anthing and everyone that opposes them.
And there are cases which can make or break the career of a young lawyer and such a case is the defence of Carl Lee Hailey to Jake Brigance. In the maelstrom that has become Clanton he'll do anything to defend his client, his case and, ultimately, his life and the lives of his family.
