In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he’s being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors’ increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why?

Ever wonder what happens in the jury room, where lawyers aren’t heard and the judge is not welcome? Who controls a jury when the door is locked and the deliberations begin? In John Grisham’s newest novel, readers will find out the answers to these questions. For, every jury has a leader—and the verdict belongs to that person.

    " I read this a couple of years ago - it was my first John Grisham novel. Though I enjoy sci-fi novels, I'd heard plenty about Grisham and decided to give it a spin. I wasn't disappointed. I finished Rainmaker recently and while I think Rainmaker is better, that doesn't mean this is at all a bad read. Like Rainmaker, this is about little people v a big corporation. Rudy Baylor in Rainmaker was fleshed out, the characters in here are not as fleshed out, as the story concentrates on the individual members of the jury. I like that, it made for a unique kind of novel, and a highly enjoyable one, so 4/5 stars. Great work, Mr. Grisham! "
