Grisham's new book, "Sycamore Row," will be published Oct. 22, the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group announced Wednesday. 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. But after "The Firm" and other thrillers made Grisham a brand name, his first book was reissued and became a best-seller. "A Time to Kill," in which Brigance successfully defends a man accused of murder, was later been adapted into both a movie and a stage production.
