John Grisham is a lawyer and an incredibly successful author best known for his legal thrillers. After graduating from law school, Grisham practiced law for about ten years and then went into politics. He served in the Mississippi House of Representatives for six years, during which time he wrote his first novel, “A Time to Kill”.

“A Time to Kill” is an excellent thriller written by John Grisham. It was adapted for the big screen using the same title, and stars Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey. This was Grisham’s first novel and it was rejected by many publishers. In the end was only given a print run of 5,000 copies by Wynwood Press. Then Grisham made it big with a succession of great novels, namely “The Firm”, “The Pelican Brief” and “The Client”, so Doubleday republished “A Time to Kill” and it became a bestseller.
