Book Description :

“Grisham knocks it out of the park.”—The Washington Post It’s the summer of 1973, and Joe Castle is the boy wonder of baseball, the greatest rookie anyone has ever seen. The kid from Calico Rock, Arkansas, dazzles Chicago Cubs fans as he hits home run after home run, politely tipping his hat to the crowd as he shatters all rookie records. Calico Joe quickly becomes the idol of every baseball fan in America, including Paul Tracey, the young son of a hard-partying and hard-throwing New York Mets pitcher. On the day that Warren Tracey finally faces Calico Joe, Paul is in the stands, rooting for his idol but also for his dad. Then Warren throws a fastball that will change their lives forever. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “An enjoyable, heartwarming read that’s not just for baseball fans.”—USA Today “Grisham has hit a home run. . . . Calico Joe is a great read, a lyrical ode to baseball, small-town America, youthful innocence and a young boy’s search for heroes.”—The Buffalo News “[A] pleasure . . . Suffice to say [Grisham] knows his way around the ballpark as well as he does a courtroom.”—The Washington Times Includes an excerpt of John Grisham’s The Racketeer

Book Description :

Paul Tracey vit paisiblement à Santa Fe avec sa femme et leurs trois filles. Jusqu'au jour où il apprend que son père, Warren, avec lequel il a rompu tout lien, est atteint d'un cancer incurable. A la fin des années 60, Warren Tracey, joueur de base-ball professionnel, a connu sa brève heure de gloire dans la célèbre équipe des Mets de New-York. Arrogant et sournois, il a tristement marqué les annales du base-ball en visant à la tête un fabuleux joueur en pleine ascension, "Calico" Joe, lors d'un match crucial de 1973. Après des mois d'hospitalisation consécutifs à une attaque cérébrale, Joe s'est retrouvé handicapé et aveugle d'un oeil. Sa carrière s'est brisée net, alors qu'il était sur le point de devenir le Di Maggio de sa génération. Agé de onze ans, Paul, dont Joe était l'idole, a été témoin du lancer déloyal de son père. Depuis ce jour, il ne lui a plus inspiré que du dégoût. Père absent et époux infidèle, Warren a divorcé de sa femme puis s'est remarié plusieurs fois et a médiocrement fini sa carrière. Paul s'est éloigné de lui, au point de ne plus le voir que tous les dix ans. La mort annoncée de ce père détestable le pousse soudain à assouvir un besoin de réparation qui l'habite depuis plus de trois décennies. Joe vit désormais à Calico, sa ville natale, en Arkansas. Sans savoir ce qu'est devenu ce malheureux, Paul rêve que Warren lui rend visite pour lui demander pardon. Mais comment s'y prendre pour qu'une fois, au moins, avant de disparaître, son père reconnaisse un de ses torts et tente de se racheter ? Paul projette alors de lui soumettre un marché en forme de chantage...

Book Description :

The time frame of these stories collected in this book, written in my column, A Cup O’ Kapeng Barako, has a span of four years. The beginning chapters began in the year of 2012 when President Barack Obama was campaigning for his re-election, ending in the final chapters when Obama in year 2008 ran for the presidency of the United States. But this book is not solely or merely about my opinions on politics. It’s also about my take on current events, and my Barako thoughts on people and things that affected me personally. This book also contained conversations with people through emails, who came into my life during those four years. Some of those conversations were heated and hated, but some were also tender and kind. But beneath them all, laughter abounds. For I write my column primarily for fun . . . meant only to be read by friends and comrades, and fellow Barakos. If at times I get corny, or my Pilipino English gets atrocious, they are puns intended, untended, and unintended, as in “batu-batu sa langit, tamaan ’wag magagalit.” For my mainstream readers and friends, that means, “stones-stones thrown up in the air, don’t get mad if they fall on your hair.” As y’all can see, I am a wanna-be humorist, dyoking a lot. Some stories in this book also contained glimpses of my personal life, portions of which, are also hilariously funny, but tender and expressing love in places. Okey ngarud, happy reading, Dear Readers. JJ

A sequel to A TIME TO KILL He will make them pay . . . Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man's suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left ninety per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid. The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both. AS the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard's death: What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang? Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row? And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, 'no human should ever see'? ************ Praise for SYCAMORE ROW 'A gripping read' - Literary Review 'A fantastic book' - 5 STAR reader review 'Just as good [as A Time To Kill] . . . an excellent climax' - 5 STAR reader review 'Grisham at his best'- 5 STAR reader review

Book Description :

The Sunday Times bestseller from international bestseller John Grisham. 'Grisham at his passionate best' - Daily Mail He was framed for murder. Now he needs a miracle. 22 years ago Quincy Miller was sentenced to life without parole. He was accused of killing Keith Russo, a lawyer in a small Florida town. But there were no reliable witnesses and little motive. Just the fact that Russo had botched Quincy's divorce case, that Quincy was black in a largely all-white town and that a blood-splattered torch was found in the boot of Quincy's car. A torch he swore was planted. A torch that was conveniently destroyed in a fire just before his trial. The lack of evidence made no difference to judge or jury. In the eyes of the law Quincy was guilty and, no matter how often he protested his innocence, his punishment was life in prison. Finally, after 22 years, comes Quincy's one and only chance of freedom. An innocence lawyer and minister, Cullen Post, takes on his case. Post has exonerated eight men in the last ten years. He intends to make Quincy the next. But there were powerful and ruthless people behind Russo's murder. They prefer that an innocent man dies in jail rather than one of them. There's one way to guarantee that. They killed one lawyer 22 years ago, and they'll kill another without a second thought. Praise for John Grisham's THE GUARDIANS: 'A canny and engrossing blend of two types of Grisham novel: enough of the familiar formula of a single lawsuit in a single town, mixed with a more picaresque and multistranded approach that has the significant advantage of taking in a wider swathe of America' - The Sunday Times 'Delivered with all his signature easy, flowing style. A past master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos, Grisham makes this a deceptively easy read' - Irish Independent 'This is typical Grisham: speedy, gripping, very good at conveying the complexities of the law in a digestible way' - Sunday Express 'Speedy and gripping' - Daily Mirror 350+ million copies, 45 languages, 9 blockbuster films: NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM
