The Last Juror by John Grisham

In this gripping legal thriller, the story unfolds in a small town in Mississippi during the 1970s, where a young journalist becomes intricately involved in the life of the community after purchasing the local newspaper. The narrative takes a dramatic turn when a brutal murder shakes the town, leading to a high-profile trial that tests the limits of justice and morality. Central to the story is the relationship between the journalist and the trial's last juror, an enigmatic and morally complex character whose beliefs and decisions play a pivotal role in the unfolding drama. As the trial progresses, themes of racism, revenge, and redemption are explored, painting a vivid picture of a community at a crossroads and the power of an individual's conscience in the face of societal pressures.
