Number-one best-selling author John Grisham's The Reckoning is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.
"A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga…The Reckoning is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer. Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case." (USA Today)
October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi
Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi's favorite son - a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed his pastor and friend, the Reverend Dexter Bell. As if the murder weren’t shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Pete's only statement about it - to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family - was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.

- An Intereresting Diversion for Grisham Review by Pat
Although the book is a tad too long and digesses in WWII history for a bit too long, as well, it's a fine bit of work that sustains interest throughout. Unlike a lot of those who previously reviewed this book here I had no trouble getting through the 17.5 hours of listening without problem at all. In a Shakespearean sort of way, this book is a tragedy, a continuing descent into a set of problems the characters have to live through, suffer through and finally live with as the book comes to its very troubling and surprising ending. I'd never re-read it but i'm glad I had the chance to plow avidly through it this once.

- Unnecessarily Brutal Review by M B Jensen
The book was interesting and would have been a good short story. But the seemingly unending brutality was too much in my opinion for the ending.

- The best from Grisham Review by A P BRAUN MD
This tale is expertly written and riveting. I think it’s the best he’s done but all of his stories are fabulous and beautifully told. He is the quintessential author of our age. It is a great love story and an historical account of our brave soldiers in a most difficult and horrible situation during WWII. A MUST READ!!!!!

- Excellent book! Superb narrator! Review by Kitsy
Fantastic book! Narrator Michael Beck was outstanding! His portrayal of all the characters was superb. I felt every emotion each character was feeling in the book due to his spot on narration. This is one book that I'm glad I listened to instead of read on my own, because Michael Beck brought every word to life. The story had many levels, and each one was captivating. This should be made into a movie. 5+ stars!!
