The Last Juror

In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details and the paper began to prosper. The murderer, Danny Padgitt was tried before a packed courthouse in Clanton, Mississippi. The trial came to a startling and dramatic end when he was found guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison, but in Mississippi, in 1970, "life" didn't necessarily mean "life" and nine years later Danny Padgitt managed to get himself paroled. He returned to Ford County and the retribution began.

  • "In 1970s Clanton, Mississippi, college dropout Willie Traynor turns a failed small-town paper into a success covering a local rape and murder case and finds his life coming full circle when, nine years after receiving a life sentence for that crime, Danny Padgitt, son of Clanton's most brutally powerful family, is paroled and jury members from the trial begin turning up dead."@en
  • ""In 'The Last Juror,' John Grisham returns to Clanton, Mississippi, where Willie Traynor, born in Memphis and educated in New York, buys the local weekly newspaper in 1970. Changing the paper's focus from light news to crime reporting, Willie covers the trial of Danny Padgitt, the son of a wealthy criminal family who was convicted of rape and murder. As he's led away for a life sentence, Danny vows revenge on the jurors. Willie settles into small town Southern life and is befriended by Miss Callie Ruffin, an elderly black woman who was the last juror selected for the murder trial. Their cozy lifestyle is threatened, not just by changing times, but by the parole of Danny Padgitt after serving only nine years. This is vintage John Grisham....The New York Times says, '"The Last Juror" does not need to coast on its author's megapopularity. It's a reminder of how the Grisham juggernaut began.'""@en

  • ""Set in the 1970s, the story follows Willie Traynor, a young reporter who buys a struggling newspaper and thinks it will be easy running a weekly in a sleepy town. Clanton doesn't stay sleepy for long. Danny Padgitt, a member of a wealthy family, is accused of brutally raping and murdering a woman in front of her two young children. The case is a slam-dunk - the victim's last words were, "It was Danny Padgitt"--And the Ford County Times rivets the town with the trial's lurid details. But when someone starts targeting those who convicted Padgitt and a gunshot rips through a window about 20 feet above Willie's head, his career choice no longer seems so safe."--Elizabeth A.
