the pelican brief

Two Supreme Court Justices are dead. Their murders remain unsolved.

Darby Shaw, a brilliant and beautiful New Orleans legal student, draws up a speculative legal brief which links the deaths and uncovers an astonishing presidential conspiracy.

When her boyfriend is atomised in a car bomb, it becomes clear that somebody is intent on silencing Darby for good. Somebody who will stop at nothing to preserve the secrets of the Pelican Brief...

Well it's amazing of how a puzzle can be solved by theory, can't put down Grisham

Thanks for the thrill.

This novel is still my best even after reading 12 of Grisham's books. Darby Shaw is a great character that i identify with totally. Grisham has a great way of introducing his characters.Looking for a true legal thriller? Get Grisham and you'll have no complain.

WOW! This book took my breath away. If you are looking for a satisfying, wholsome, gripping and unpredictable story then you won't be dissapointed. The writing is incredible!
I really enjoyed this book. It is a story which has you gripped from a very early stage. There are numerous threads of the story which are crafted well into one another as the story progresses. The number of threads adds to the pace of the story, with the reader easily able to keep up with each set of characters, and thier roles in the outcome. The writing is flows easily, which makes it so difficult to put the book down. This book also gives an interesting insight into the power and vulnerability of those at the top of the food chain - the reader feels like they know much more about the president's life than when they started the book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an exciting thriller!
