Why 'The Reckoning' is a first for John Grisham

Clip: 01/01/2019 | 5m 13s

Best-selling author John Grisham became a lawyer, got bored and turned his courtroom experience into legal thrillers instead. His latest, "The Reckoning," tells of the murder of a Mississippi preacher by a returning World War II hero, who confesses to the crime but won't explain why he did it. Jeffrey Brown spoke with Grisham at the Miami Book Fair about the novel, which includes a Grisham first.
