Адаптированная книга на английском языке «A Time to Kill by John Grisham».
Billy Ray Cobb sat on the back of the pickup drinking a beer, watching his friend Pete Willard take his turn with the black girl. She was ten, and small for her age. She did not look at the man on top of her. He was breathing hard and swearing. He was hurting her. When he finished, he hit her in the mouth and laughed, and the other man laughed too. Then they laughed harder and rolled around the grass by the pickup, screaming like two crazy men. The girl lay in a pool of blood and beer.
Later, Willard asked what Billy Ray planned to do now that they had finished with her. Billy Ray said they should kill her.
«Are you going to do it?» asked Willard.
Cobb hesitated. «No, I’ll let you do it.»
Willard said, «It wasn’t my idea. You’re the one who’s good at killing niggers. You do it.» He thought for a minute while he finished a beer. «Let’s throw her off a bridge.»
«Good idea. Very good idea,» said Billy Ray.
They drove past Lake Chatulla, a large, man-made mud-hole
in the far southwest corner of Ford County, looking for a place to throw out their unwanted passenger. At each bridge they approached, they saw blacks fishing in the muddy water. Cobb was getting desperate by now. He turned off into a side road and stopped the pickup. They threw her into the long grass at the edge of the woods.
Carl Lee Hailey did not hurry home when he got the phone call. Gwen was easily excited, and she had called him at work before when she thought the children had been kidnapped. He only became anxious when he turned into his yard and saw the police car parked next to the house.
