NEW YORK – The defense attorney in John Grisham’s first novel, “A Time to Kill,” is returning to the courtroom.

Grisham’s new book, “Sycamore Row,” will be published Oct. 22, the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group announced. Like “A Time to Kill,” it will feature Jake Brigance as a lawyer in a small Mississippi town. Knopf Doubleday promises a trademark Grisham tale of “intrigue, suspense and plot twists.”

“A Time to Kill” was published in 1989 and sold modestly.
