A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

"A driving, unputdownable courtroom drama/murder mystery that is also a literary treasure . . . Put this one on your don't-miss list." -Stephen King, #1 bestselling author of Sleeping Beauties

More than twenty years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial in Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. Now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, Sabich has found his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances. Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow-the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.

"Breathtaking . . . worth the wait."
-Philadelphia Inquirer

"Masterful . . . compelling and enjoyable."
-Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Fresh and fierce, more than a courtroom procedural . . . [a] delectable page-turner."
-Chicago Tribune

"A cunning, intricate thriller . . . meticulously constructed and superbly paced, full of twists and surprises."
-New York Times Book Review

"Turow wins again . . . He remains at his best."
-USA Today

    What a truly wonderful book Mr Turow has written. It is far more than an excellent legal thriller. It is a fascinating tale of relationships, marriage, love, children, and all that makes up the human condition. It is as riveting as Presumed Innocent - a page turner that you can't put down. More so though it is a remarkable story with characters who can be hard to like but who are all very real. I probably read a few dozen novels a year. This is by far the best I have read in years and easily makes it to the list of the very best I have ever read.

    Turow writes well. His characters seemed a bit thin. Odd that his aloof and enigmatic son should be transformed into the family keystone. The plot twists kept me reading, but after a while seemed forced. I suppose it's just unfair the way life goes. What karma doesn't take out, the fickle finger of fate does. I doubt there will be a sequel.
  • Pretty good

    By John345cj
    It was a good read, but a little jumpy. In a first person narrative, the narrator is not supposed to know what the other characters are thinking. That's the advantage of third person narrative, which doesn't have that limitation. In this book there are three characters giving first person narration, and poor Tommy is stuck in third person. Then the time line jumps all around. Perhaps everyone can do dumb things under stress, but any idiot knows if you find your spouse dead, you call 911 even if the body is cold. Do anything else and the cops will be all over you. Rusty was pretty dumb. I though the final "twist" tied up the "loose ends."

    Riveting and moving portrait of a family in crisis and the ties that bind. Mr Turow picks up where he left off with Rusty, Barbara, and Nat and didn't disappoint. A real page turner.

    The book was well written and kept me guessing
  • Perfect

    By ByebyeWallstreet
    Perfect read on vacation.
  • Major Disappointment

    This book had the feel of an author going through the motions. The new characters are shallow, many of the old familiar ones are glossed over or ignored (or in the case of Tommy Molto, implausibly transformed) and the storyline has none of the texture that makes Presumed Innocent one of those books that's still fun to pick up and re-read. Perhaps the biggest disappointment is the missed opportunity to use the Kindle County courtroom as a forum for an in-depth examination of something tantalizingly touched on but not pursued - the latter-day presumption that DNA evidence is infallible. Maybe Mr. Turow was tired of everyone asking him what happened to Rusty Sabich and this is his way of shutting everyone up. In any event, he should have quit while he was ahead.
