The Reckoning

By John Grisham

Pete Baning was Clanton’s favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist Church.  Then one cool October morning in 1946 he rose early, drove into town, walked into the Church, and calmly shot and killed Reverend Dexter Bell.  As if the murder wasn’t shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Pete’s only statement about it-to the sheriff, to his defense attorney, to the judge, to his family and friends, and to the people of Clanton-was “I have nothing to say.”  And so the murder of the esteemed Reverend Bell became the most mysterious and unforgettable crimes Ford County has ever known.
