Book Description


See all titles by Scott Turow.

Mesmerizing prose and intricate plotting lift Turow's superlative legal thriller, his best novel since his bestselling debut, Presumed Innocent, to which this is a sequel.

In 2008, 22 years after the events of the earlier book, former lawyer Rusty Sabich, now a Kindle County, Ill., chief appellate judge, is again suspected of murdering a woman close to him. His wife, Barbara, has died in her bed of what appear to be natural causes, yet Rusty comes under scrutiny from his old nemesis, acting prosecuting attorney Tommy Molto, who unsuccessfully prosecuted him for killing his mistress decades earlier.

Tommy's chief deputy, Jim Brand, is suspicious because Rusty chose to keep Barbara's death a secret, even from their son, Nat, for almost an entire day, which could have allowed traces of poison to disappear. Rusty's candidacy for a higher court in an imminent election; his recent clandestine affair with his attractive law clerk, Anna Vostic; and a breach of judicial ethics complicate matters further.

Once again, Turow displays an uncanny ability for making the passions and contradictions of his main characters accessible and understandable.

4 of 5 Innocent by Scott Turow November 14, 2010
Reviewer: P. Sutton from West Australia  
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and it took me on a great trip with a lot of quirks on the way.
I would recommend you read  "Presumed Innocent" first but it is not essential to enjoy this yarn. A sub plot of this book follows the first.
I found the writing different and he is very descriptive and at times I jumped overly descriptive paragraphs which I found unwieldy but I suppose it served a purpose with the drama.
The characters were excellent and believeable and I found I did not want to put the book down and kept reading.
Being involved in the legal profession I could identify a lot of the character traits to people I know and it really forces you to think about right and wrong and the adage "the end justifies the means".

I would recommend reading the book and once adapting to his mode of writing, the result in this book I believe is that the book is just a great legal thriller, worth your time and money.
