Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Just before hanging himself, terminally ill Seth Hubbard writes a new will leaving his fortune to his housekeeper. The will specifically cuts out his two grown children and four grandchildren. He mails the will and a letter to Jake Brigance (from A time to kill) with instructions to fight to the bitter end to defend the will. As Jake sets out to do just that naturally he runs into a big contest from the offspring and their many lawyers. A pretty simple premise for this Grisham novel. Too simple in my opinion. Where are the twists, turns and surprises we’ve come to expect? I finished the book but the outcome was way too easy to predict. Since Grisham does little with his characters he needs to rely on a nifty plot. This was pretty pedestrian.
