Course Description

Just back from WWII, Pete Banning—war hero, patriarch of a prominent family, farmer, father, neighbor, and faithful member of the Methodist church-- walked into the church one morning and calmly shot and killed his pastor and friend. Pete’s only statement was “I have nothing to say.” He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave. In this legal thriller author John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him.
