Summary
In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm: Twenty-six-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink??of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it??all for a death-row killer and an impossible case.??Maximum Security Unit, Mississippi State??Prison: Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman??and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty??for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of??chances -- except for one: the young, liberal Chicago??lawyer who just happens to be his grandson. While??the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while??the protesters gather and the TV??cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes??to save his client. For between the two men is a??chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets --??including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's??life ... or cost Adam his. "A dark and??thoughtful tale pulsing wit moral uncertainties ...??Grisham is at his best."??--People. "Compelling ... Powerful ...??The Chamber will make readers think??long and hard about the death penalty."--??USA Today. "His best??yet."--The Houston Post.??"Mesmerizing ... with an authority and??originality ... and with a grasp of literary??complexity that makes Scott Turow's novels pale by??comparison -- Grisham returns." -- San??Francisco Chronicle. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators
