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. Download and start listening now!
