Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presumed Innocent was the fiction debut of the decade — a magnetic work of suspense that earned Turow acclaim for his unparalleled storytelling gifts. Now, in a brilliant follow-up, Scott Turow stakes his claim as an American master, in a mesmerizing novel of law, family and deceit. Alejandro "Sandy" Stern — the brilliant defense lawyer from Presumed Innocent — comes home to discover that his wife of 30 years has committed suicide, leaving behind a web of mystery, money and guilt. While Stern hunts for answers, he is caught up in the threatened Federal prosecution of his most powerful and troublesome client — his own brother-in-law. Now, after a life of success, Sandy Stern is a man in desperate need of many truths — about his family, his uncertain future and the troubled legacy his wife left behind.

Review:

"Turow develops a complex, satisfying plot, steeped in law and finance, that turns perhaps too often on coincidence but remains utterly faithful to its deeply probed characters." Publishers Weekly
