In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm: Twenty-six-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink  of a brilliant legal career.

He has run out of  chances -- except for one: the young, liberal Chicago  lawyer who just happens to be his grandson. While  the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while  the protesters gather and the TV  cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes  to save his client. For between the two men is a  chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets --  including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's  life...or cost Adam his.

Powerful...  The Chamber will make readers think  long and hard about the death penalty." --  USA Today. "His best  yet." -- The Houston Post.  "Mesmerizing... with an authority and  originality... and with a grasp of literary  complexity that makes Scott Turow's novels pale by  comparison -- Grisham returns." -- San  Francisco Chronicle.BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.
