John Grishham - A Time to Kill [ Novel, thriller. Alexander Adams ]
Джон Гришэм - Пора убивать [ Роман, триллер. Александр Адамс ]
Brief Summary: A young, white lawyer defends a black man in a racist town.
A Time to Kill is John Grisham's first novel. In many ways you can tell because it is not written with his usual style that forms over his later novels.
The story begins when two drunken white men from the south rape a young black girl. After being returned to her family, the father, Carl Lee Hailey, instantly vows revenge - despite both men being put on trail for this crime. Well, when it's all said and done, Carl Lee shoots down both Pete Willard and Billy Ray Cobb as they're leaving the courtroom.
Carl Lee knows he killed them. His lawyer knows he killed them. The whole town knows he killed them. After all, he did it in the open and in full view of the town. Nonetheless, a young white lawyer, Jake Brigance (a family friend of the Hailey's), decides to take on this almost impossible case - and as a favor to the family, he does it on the cheap.
This is all accomplished within the first one hundred pages.
From this point on, John Grisham goes back and forth writing some story here, and describing the court system there, then some more story, then some more facts, and so on. Impressively, he writes in a way that is not very preachy - considering the controversial aspects of the story.
Есть ли задача сложнее, чем добиться оправдания человека, который отважился на самосуд и пошел на двойное убийство?
На карту поставлено многое - жизнь мужчины, преступившего закон ради чести семьи, и репутация молодого адвоката, вопреки угрозам и здравому смыслу решившегося взяться за это дело.
Любая его ошибка может стать роковой, любое неверное слово - может обернуться смертным приговором...
