Kindle version 304 pages.
Grisham's first novella collection - 3 stories.

Homecoming - p. 6 - 128.
Features Jake Brigance helping fellow lawyer who stole and disappeared with clients money.
Good story, builds well but rushed ending.

Strawberry Moon - p.129 - 179
Death Row inmates last 3 hours.
Concentrates on the inmate as opposed to the legal system.
Gives an insight into his survival and importance of books and reading to escape his confinement.
Good story.

Sparring Partners - p. 180 - 304.
Feuding law firm partners and their imprisoned father.
Bribery, pardons, double dealing.
Features some court room action.
Good story.

Strengths
Strong familiar characters/location.
Traditional Grisham themes.

Weaknesses
Abrupt/quick ending.
If a longer novel ending would develop slower.

Well worth a read for all, especially fans.
Covers traditional Grisham topics well.
Would recommend The Chamber as a traditional Death Row novel and The Runaway Jury for court room action.
