Publisher Comments:

Rommy "Squirrel" Gandolph is a Yellow Man, an inmate on death row for a 1991 triple murder in Kindle County. His slow progress toward certain execution is nearing completion when Arthur Raven, a corporate lawyer who is Rommy's reluctant court-appointed representative, receives word that another inmate may have new evidence that will exonerate Gandolph.

Arthur's opponent in the case is Muriel Wynn, Kindle County's formidable chief deputy prosecuting attorney, who is considering a run for her boss's job. Muriel and Larry Starczek, the original detective on the case, don't want to see Rommy escape a fate they long ago determined he deserved, for a host of reasons. Further complicating the situation is the fact that Gillian Sullivan, the judge who originally found Rommy guilty, is only recently out of prison herself, having served time for taking bribes.

Review:

"Piercing verisimilitude...engaging....The real appeal of Mr. Turow's legal thrillers has always resided in his ability to create complex, conflicted characters and to make palpable the world of the law." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

Review:

"Turow is well known for his many-layered narratives....No character in this novel is entirely likable; all seek to undo some past wrong, with results that get progressively worse. Turow fans should not be disappointed..." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review:

"[Turow] sets the gold standard for the genre....No car chases, explosions, threats against the detective, movie-star locations, or gourmet meals: just a deeply satisfying novel about deeply human people who just happen to be victims, schemers, counselors-at-law, or all three at once." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"Turow does an excellent job of balancing the twists and turns of the case with his characters' equally complicated personal lives and relationships, making for a well-rounded, exciting, introspective thriller." Kristine Huntley, Booklist

Review:

"[S]erious readers should be reading Turow, because he is not just one of our best crime novelists; he is also one of our better novelists....Reversible Errors...may well offer us the richest blend [of characters and environment] yet." Wendy Lesser, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"No one on the contemporary scene writes better mystery-suspense novels than Scott Turow." Bill Blum, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

"It's nice to know that old-fashioned courtroom drama about murder can still stir the blood...a sleek legal romp wrapped in stylish prose, and it makes a good case for Turow's primacy in the world of legal thrillers." Denver Post

Review:

"Turow shines....Most writers patently lack the patience, intelligence, and firsthand familiarity that Turow brings to the field....His literary court subtlety thrives." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"The thinking man's John Grisham regularly turns out polished yet compelling legal thrillers...a wonderful stylist, literate and fluid, and his characters are always believable....There's no such thing as a bad Scott Turow novel." Newsday
