When the Supreme Court's most liberal and most conservative justices are gunned down, law student Darby Shaw builds a case against a powerful suspect, whose threats send her underground
John Grisham delivers a powerful, conspiratorial legal thriller with PELICAN BRIEF. When two Supreme Court Justices are killed within hours of each other, a young law student from New Orleans, Darby Shaw, decides that the answers to these assassinations could lie within the cases currently on docket for these judges. Her research strikes a nerve, and soon Darby finds herself in danger--as a witness to a crime that powerful individuals want dead and buried. Grisham's best-selling novel was made into a film starring Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington in 1993.
