Sparring Partners | John Grisham
13 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
Three thrilling stories of the law from the master of the legal thriller. Homecoming takes us back to Ford County, the fictional setting of many of John Grisham's unforgettable stories. Jake Brigance is back, but he's not in the courtroom. He's called upon to help an old friend, Mack Stafford, a former lawyer in Clanton who three years earlier became a local legend when he stole some money from his clients, divorced his wife, filed for bankruptcy, and left his family in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again. Until now. Now Mack is back and he's leaning on his old pals, Jake and Harry Rex, to help him return. His homecoming does not go as planned. In Strawberry Moon, we meet Cody Wallace, a young death row inmate only three hours away from execution. His lawyers can't save him, the courts slam the door, and the Governor says no to a last minute request for clemency. As the clock ticks down, Cody has only one final request. The Sparring Partners are the Malloy brothers, Kirk and Rusty, two successful young lawyers who inherited a once prosperous firm when its founder, their father, was sent to prison. Kirk and Rusty loathe one another, and speak to each other only when necessary. As the firm disintegrates, the fiasco falls into the lap of Diantha Bradshaw, the only person the partners trust. Can she save the Malloys, or does she take a stand for the first time and try to save herself? 350+ million copies, 45 languages, 9 blockbuster films: NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM

Really enjoyed this set of short stories. After I read them I noticed that they are part of a series but I thought they were good all on their own.

I picked this up during the BIG Audible sale and while I thought the audio narration was fabulous I was underwhelmed with the overall collection. This was 3 separate novellas, which felt more like bits of a larger unfinished story. Grisham writes captivating stories and characters and while I enjoyed all three novellas, I was left wanting MORE. #MoreMehThanYeah

4 ⭐. I always enjoy John Grisham's mystery/law books. I didn't read the synopsis close enough to see these were 3 novellas. They were all three good. The first two maybe the strongest.

marleed I liked the first two the best, as well. 4mo

I enjoyed these three novella‘s John Grisham came up with during the pandemic. Any time I get to spend time with Jake Briggance I‘m a happy camper. My favorite was the his second story about a 29-yr old in his last hours on death row -it will stay with me. In fact, I should have set this book down and read a romance before starting the third story. It‘s a good story but full of greed so I just wanted back in stories 1 & 2.

Fast reading. Homecoming is about a lawyer who left his family and the country but now wants to come back. Strawberry Moon concerns a young man on death row and if you are anti-execution, it makes a powerful statement. The book title novella concerns 2 lawyer partners who can‘t stand each other. Their father is in prison for killing their mother. There is some humor in it. The problem with novellas is you want them to go on longer

Took a break from the others I‘m working on to tackle these 3 short stories. It was a nice break from the others and Jake Brigance made an appearance. #grisham
