Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER In suburban Georgetown a killer's Reeboks whisper on the front floor of a posh home... In a seedy D.C. porno house a patron is swiftly garroted to  death... The next day America learns that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief...

To Darby Shaw it was no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the Washington establishment it was political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder—a murder intended for her. Going underground, she finds there is only one person she can trust—an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate—to help her piece together the deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of Louisiana and the White House's inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is being engineered. For someone has read Darby's brief. Someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime.

    Well, what can i say? Only what I can say. And hopefully this one will NOT be removed like the others. The Pelican Brief was the third novel by John Grisham I had read, and it's my personal favorite. Darby Shaw is quick and sharp, and she does not treat her own life like some game of truth-or-dare. I honestly tried to focus as much on Gray Grantham, the investigate reporter, but Darby herself was a bit easier to acknowledge. Now don't get any ideas. I still enjoyed his resourcefulness and his ability to work with people he knows and does not know. the film is all right and all, but pages first, screen later.
  • Great book...
