By John Grisham
Przysięgli byli gotowi.Po czterdziestu dwóch godzinach obrad, po siedemdziesięciu jeden dniach procesu, po pięciuset trzydziestu godzinach zeznań czterdziestu kilku świadków i po całych wiekach milczącego wysiadywania, kiedy prawnicy spierali się, sędzia pouczał, a widzowie wypatrywali jak jastrzębie znaczących sygnałów, przysięgli byli gotowi. Dziesięcioro zamkniętych w pokoju dla przysięgłych, odosobnionych i bezpiecznych, z dumą kładło nazwiska pod werdyktem, a dwoje obrażonych siedziało w kącie, samotnych i żałosnych w swoim sprzeciwie.Były uściski i uśmiechy, i sporo zadowolenia, bo wyszli cało z tej batalii i mogli dumnie wmaszerować z powrotem na arenę z decyzją, którą wybronili siłą czystej determinacji, zawzięcie dążąc do kompromisu. Przetrwali ciężką próbę, wypełnili obywatelski obowiązek. Odsłużyli swoje ponad normę. Byli gotowi.Tak zaczyna się nowy mystery prawniczy, w którym Grisham tym razem zaskakuje bezlitosną ironią. Balansuje między czarnym humorem a zjadliwą groteską. Dzięki temu cała rzeczywistość: postaci, prawo i sprawiedliwość przybierają jeszcze bardziej złowieszczy wyraz.

This year: Björk and Sting. The warehouse in which Wilson stood, wishing he could smoke, was a prefab hulk with broken windows and rusting joints. Set back from the road on an acre of hardpan, it was cold inside—except where the welders worked. There was a ton of hash in place—quality smoke, grown locally under the supervision of Hakim’s contacts in the Ministry of Defense. Even with an assembly line, getting the product ready to ship took time. Each “hand” weighed half a kilo and had to be packaged so that it would be undetectable as it moved across borders.
