Sycamore Row was a fun read. Grisham returns to Clanton, Mississippi in Ford County twenty-five years after “A Time To Kill.” Jake Brigance is still a small town lawyer- his family still hasn’t fully recovered from the Hailey case but now there is suicide that fires the gossip throughout Ford County and Jake is in the middle of it. There is more to the case than meets the eye and Grisham does a good job of revealing it.
Excerpts From My Kindle

Welch understood perfectly. It was another clear example of what was never taught in law school. – location 4969-71
