In 1967 in Greenville, Mississippi, known Klan member Sam Cayhall is accused of bombing the law offices of Jewish civil rights activist Marvin Kramer, killing Kramer's two sons. Cayhall's first trial, with an all-white jury and a Klan rally outside the courthouse, ends in a hung jury, the retrial six months later has the same outcome.

Twelve years later an ambitious district attorney in Greenville reopens the case. Much has changed since 1967, and this time, with a jury of eight whites and four blacks, Cahyhall is convicted. He is transferred to the state penitentiary at Parchman to await execution on death row.

In 1990, in the huge Chicago law firm of Kravitz & Bane, a young lawyer name Adam Hall asks to work on the Cayhall case, which the firm has handled on a pro bono basis for years. But the case is all but lost and time is running out; within weeks Sam Cayhall will finally go to the gas chamber. Why in the world would Adam want to get involved?

Since the publication of The Firm in 1991, John Grisham has become one of our most popular authors. His four previous novels have all been number one bestsellers, and three have been made into films. In The Chamber he has returned to the spiritual landscape of his first novel, A Time to Kill, to craft a story that is at once a gripping thriller and exploration of how one family comes to terms with their dark and complex past.
