This was Turow's first book. It is an exciting mystery, crime drama, courtroom book. The ending is such a surpise, that when I finished I wanted to read the book all over again to seek out the clues.
Turow is really one of the best mystery writers I've read. This story has an entirely different tone than Presumed Innocent, even though the main character is the same (Sandy Stern). It deals with financial malfeasance, and it can be a little hard to follow, but it's well worth it.
EXCELLENT WRITER, THOUGHTFUL AND PROVOKING. FULL OF TWISTS AND KEEPS YOU IN AWE OF THE HUMAN FRAILITIES.
A man facing an event so shattering that no part of his life is left untouched. It shows the family caught in hidden crimes, shocking secrets and warring passions.
If you like Grisham, you'll probably like Turow. It's easily-consumed drama from the legal world. Seemed like this was gonna be a big trend in the nineties and, well, I guess it was in a way.
