Overview

En Clanton, un pequeño pueblo de Mississippi, los delitos tienen distinto valor según la raza del culpable. Cuando Carl Lee Hailey mata a tiros a los rufianes que violaron a su hija de diez años, los habitantes de la zona –indignados al principio por la suerte de la pequeña, pero inmersos después en una espiral de violencia racista– pretenden llevarse por delante todo lo que obstruya su particular noción de justicia. El encargado de defender a Hailey es el inexperto abogado Jake Brigance. Tiene un caso entre manos que puede impulsar su carrera o destrozarla por completo. Pero, con la confusión que reina en Clanton, también es uno de esos casos del que puede derivarse la muerte de un joven letrado blanco. «El mejor escritor vivo de thrillers.» Ken Follett
