In this book, John Grisham abandoned his usual novel-writing and focused on one unfortunate man in a small city in Oklahoma. Already stigmatized as the town "burnout," once he was accused of murder there seemed to be no getting out of it, though the evidence for the crime was sketchy at best. While this book lacks the homeric intensity of Grisham's best fictions, it has a lot to say about how law enforcement can be used - and misused - to indict and persecute those whose chief sin seems to have been an ability to serve as a convenient scapegoat.

A serial killer and terrorist for the KKK is finally sentenced to death in spite of the perjured testimony set up by his attorney. For nearly ten years, the man uses a private library (provided by the public on the death row) to flood the system with appeals and motions, to delay the execution. He is then joined by pro-bono lawyers (that is, paid by the public), headed by a [...] a year attorney (plus all expenses). The team uses every dirty trick and perjured testimony to tie up the system and delay the execution. Their position is that an elderly death-row inmate should just be released outright and they believe that the end justifies the maens.

The result is pretentious and boring and a tragic waste of the creative writing genius of Grisham.
The readyng is monotonous, and some fastidious. There is not emotion on it.
A vicious KKK serial murderer, a man with a record of lifelong violence, is finally put on the death row. Then for years he spends his time at a private legal library that the taxpayers must put at his disposition on the death row. From there, he ties up the system with endless motions, petitions, and appeals. The public pays a fortune on the case. His attorneys organize deliberately perjured testimonies for him. They also PAY law-school students to impersonate residents of the state and saturate the governor's office with calls that demand a pardon for the murderer. (The saturation has the objective of preventing anyone else from getting through to the governor's office.)

Grisham's thesis is that, however vicious the criminal, the death penalty is unjustified and inhuman. In fact, Grisham implies, death-row inmates should be just released to the street, especially if they are elderly and/or have grandchildren. And there is the usual complaint that the death-row cells are not air-conditioned.

It's a pity that a writer of Grisham's stature wastes his time, and the readers', on such pretentious, sentimental, soapbox bore of a novel.
John Grisham's tale of a Klan member on death row and his zealous, conflicted grandson is a hard yet tender story of complex characters in tough situations. Enric Tremps does a seamless job of translating it into Spanish, preserving the flow and emotion of the novel, a difficult task with such a uniquely American storyline. This is not great literature, but it's a well-written page-turner.
Fantástico! te lo leerás "casi" de un tirón! Tiene todo para ser un buen libro, la traducción al español es excelente, no se ha perdido nada.
Reconozco ser fans de este autor. Luego de haber leido mas de 20 de sus novelad, me encontré nuevamente von un tema interesante. La pena de muerte ya no rige en Chile, sin embargo es interesante cómo se va desarrollando todo un ambiente próximo a una ejecución. Por una parte la carrera de los abogados en torno a las últimas diligencias que los puedan llevar a retrasar ese minuto, como los propios preparativos del penal.
Hago una observación al autor. Para los que no pertenecemos al ámbito de las leyes, hay pasajes con explicaciones muy detalladas de procedimientos, que para los legos en la materia, no son de interés y se hace un poco tedioso. Sin embargo el libro es muy bueno y lo que más rescató, es que me deja un tema a pensar...en este caso, cómo es la familia que me tocó y no elegi. Lo recomiendo!!
