1. The Judge’s List
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a new legal thriller about a man who might be the most criminal sitting judge in American history As an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct, Lacy Stoltz sees plenty of corruption among the men and women elected to the bench. In THE WHISTLER, she took on a crime syndicate that was paying millions to a crooked judge. Now, in THE JUDGE”S LIST, the crimes are even worse. The man hiding behind the black robe is not taking bribes–but he may be taking lives. THE JUDGE”S LIST–you don”t want to be on it.
THIS TIME, JOHN GRISHAM TAKES YOU TO A DIFFERENT KIND OF COURT. In the summer of his seventeenth year, Samu00aduel Sooleymon gets the chance of a lifetime: a trip to the United States with his South Sudanese teammates to play in a showcase basketu00adball tournament. He has never been away from home, nor has he ever been on an airplane. The opportunity to be scouted by dozens of college coaches is a dream come true. Samuel is an amazing athlete, with speed, quicku00adness, and an astonishing vertical leap. The rest of his game, though, needs work, and the American coaches are less than impressed. During the tournament, Samuel receives devu00adastating news from home: A civil war is raging across South Sudan, and rebel troops have ranu00adsacked his village. His father is dead, his sister is missing, and his mother and two younger brothers are in a refugee camp. Samuel desperately wants to go home, but it”s just not possible. Partly out of sympathy, the coach of North Carolina Central offers him a scholaru00adship. Samuel moves to Durham, enrolls in classes, joins the team, and prepares to sit out his freshman season. There is plenty of more mature talent and he isn”t immediately needed. But Samuel has something no other player has: a fierce determination to succeed so he can bring his family to America. He works tirelessly on his game, shooting baskets every morning at dawn by himself in the gym, and soon he”s dominating everyone in practice. With the Central team losu00ading and suffering injury after injury, Sooley, as he is nicknamed, is called off the bench. And the legend begins. But how far can Sooley take his team? And will success allow him to save his family? Gripping and moving, Sooley showcases John Grisham”s unparalleled storytelling powers in a whole new light. This is Grisham at the top of his game.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER * “The perfect crime scene . . . in the type of wild but smart caper that Grisham”s readers love.”–Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing “Escapist entertainment . . . with elements of a more traditional Grisham thriller.”–Janet Maslin, The New York Times Just as Bruce Cable”s Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for Camino Island. Florida”s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm. The hurricane is devastating: Homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded–and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce”s and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson”s injuries suggests that the storm wasn”t the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head. Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill-equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson”s novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson”s computer is the manuscript of his new book. Could the key to the case be right there–in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson”s plot twists–and far more dangerous.
4. A Time For Mercy
Jake Brigance, the protagonist of A Time to Kill, John Grisham”s classic legal thriller is back. This time he”s at the epicenter of a sensational murder trial that bitterly divides the citizens of Clanton, Mississippi. A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time.

Once he learns the details of the case, he realizes he has to do everything he can to save Drew–who is sixteen. Jake”s commitment to the truth puts his career and the safety of his family at risk. Filled with all the courtroom machinations, small-town intrigues, and plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy emphatically confirms John Grisham”s reputation as America”s favorite storyteller. There is a time to kill, a time for justice, and A TIME FOR MERCY.
