Publisher Comments:

In Kindle County, a woman is killed in an apparent random drive-by shooting. The woman turns out to be the ex-wife of a prominent state senator and an old acquaintance of Judge Sonia Klonsky, on whose desk the case lands. As the pursuit of justice takes bizarre and unusual turns, Judge Klonsky is brought face-to-face with a host of extraordinary personalities and formidable enemies bent on her destruction.

I do not know how I missed this one when it came out; but I am glad I found it now! This is vintage Turow, with cameo appearances by some of our favorite Kindle County denizens like the iconic Sandy Stern, but it centers on a new group of characters. The chief protagonist is Judge Sonny Klonsky who ends up presiding over a murder trial that brings back several people from an early pivotal period of her life -- the 60s, when she attended school at a thinly disguised UC Berkeley. there are two mysteries going on through out the novel . . . who committed the modern day murder, and why, and how did her former lover, who is now a renowned newspaper columnist, end up using the name of their old neighbor? Turow weaves the two stories together beautifully, and as in all Turow books, the characters, even minor characters, are fully formed people. A great summer read.
