John Grisham - Der Polizist
Jake Brigance, hero of the bestsellers "The Jury" and "The Heiress", is back. This time, as a public defender, he is at the centre of a sensational murder trial in Clanton, Mississippi. His client Drew Gamble is accused of killing a local deputy. The majority of Clanton loudly demands a short trial and the death penalty. Yet Drew Gamble is only 16 years old. Jake Brigance works his way into the case and quickly understands that he must do everything he can to save the boy. Even if he risks not only his career but also the lives of his family in his fight for the truth.
