Audio excerpt:

 

Down to the last day, even the last hour now. I’m an old man, lonely and unloved, sick and hurting and tired of living. I am ready for the hereafter; it has to be better than this.

Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His heirs, are circling like vultures. Nate O’Riley is a high-octane Washington litigator who’s lived too hard, too fast, for too long. He is emerging from his fourth stay in rehab. Returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it’s going to be murder.

Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world with all its strivings and trappings and encumbrances, and went to live and work with a primitive tribe of Indians in the deepest jungles of Brazil.

In a story that mixes legal suspense with a remarkable adventure, their lives are forever altered by the startling secret of The Testament.

  4. I am happy with the ending but sad that the story came to an end. Thanks again Mr Grisham for a wonderful story!

  11. I just finished reading The Testament and was pleased to discover that it will be made into a movie – where it might have an even broader impact. Grisham has become a favorite of mine since a heart “event” has kept me out of the fast track these last two years. To consider the overwhelming consequences – good and bad- that eleven billion dollars would have on the pure and simple life of the Brazilian Indians and other such cultures (or the Phelan heirs)is staggering and sobering and revealing of the struggle that is within us all. I am pleased that John will have “creative input” – which I know he will carefully wield – much like Nate, who now controls the Phelan trust…


  12. I am glad so many comments here matches my feelings felt for the novel, hats off to grisham and his fan folks


  13. just had read it last month, and when i found out it will soon be a movie, i really can’t wait to see it. I just hope this would indeed show us the picture of how do people in Brazil had their simple life goes like and also how did this lost lawyer turn out from being into a rehab to reaching out to people who will give meaning to what we call life.
