By John Grisham
Przysięgli byli gotowi.Po czterdziestu dwóch godzinach obrad, po siedemdziesięciu jeden dniach procesu, po pięciuset trzydziestu godzinach zeznań czterdziestu kilku świadków i po całych wiekach milczącego wysiadywania, kiedy prawnicy spierali się, sędzia pouczał, a widzowie wypatrywali jak jastrzębie znaczących sygnałów, przysięgli byli gotowi. Dziesięcioro zamkniętych w pokoju dla przysięgłych, odosobnionych i bezpiecznych, z dumą kładło nazwiska pod werdyktem, a dwoje obrażonych siedziało w kącie, samotnych i żałosnych w swoim sprzeciwie.Były uściski i uśmiechy, i sporo zadowolenia, bo wyszli cało z tej batalii i mogli dumnie wmaszerować z powrotem na arenę z decyzją, którą wybronili siłą czystej determinacji, zawzięcie dążąc do kompromisu. Przetrwali ciężką próbę, wypełnili obywatelski obowiązek. Odsłużyli swoje ponad normę. Byli gotowi.Tak zaczyna się nowy mystery prawniczy, w którym Grisham tym razem zaskakuje bezlitosną ironią. Balansuje między czarnym humorem a zjadliwą groteską. Dzięki temu cała rzeczywistość: postaci, prawo i sprawiedliwość przybierają jeszcze bardziej złowieszczy wyraz.

It must have exploded just as the lead Alfa was passing alongside it, as the cops’ car was plastered against the Vatican’s outer wall, thrown into it sideways. What looked like the second Alfa was also in the wreckage, piled into some parked cars. Debris was everywhere, clumps of concrete and metal still raining down around them.

The startled mechanics did a double-take and moved THE TEMPLAR SALVATION 37 to confront them, but Reilly was overﬂowing with adrenaline and out of time.
