“So, he’s directly under your care, then, Doctor?”
“And what is his diagnosis, Doctor?”
“I really don’t know. I have a lot of patients and—”
“It’s possible, yes.”
“Now, Doctor, I want to make this clear for the jury. In 1975 you testified that Danny Booker was legally sane and understood exactly what he was doing when he committed his crime, and the jury disagreed with you and found him not guilty, and since that time he has been a patient in your hospital, under your supervision, and treated by you as a paranoid schizophrenic. Is that correct?” (Ch.40, A Time to Kill)
A legal thriller that pushes me to the edge of my seat is exactly what I need on a rainy, order-take-out kind of night. John Grisham is really good. It’s more than a page-turning legal thriller. He creates the whole social fabrics and all the contradicting forces and opinions to a most pivotal case.
