I really enjoyed this book - it's a courtroom suspense/mysetry. If you like John Grisham, you'll probably like this one. The author wrote Presumed Innocent (movie made with Harrison Ford). I enjoyed that book also. This one was good suspense, not too easy to figure out, made you want to keep reading.

It was another drive-by shooting in one of Kindle County's most drug-plagued housing projects--but the victim was the ex-wife of a politician. Now this explosive case is about to reunite an unlikely group of men and women who first bonded in the revolutionary fires of the 1960s . . . and show a once-crusading female judge, driven by both her fears and her courage, just how devastating a single wrong choice can be.

Great courtroom thriller about a drive-by shooting in a drug-plagued housing project. The explosive case reunits a group of men and women who bonded in the revolutionary fires of the 1960's.

Adrive-by shooting in Kindle County's drug-plagued housing project. The victim is an aging white woman and her son, a probation officer is charged with the crim. Judge Sonia (Sonny) Klonsky (from Burden of Proof) presides at the trial. There are lots of flash backs to her college years as the defense attorney and a reporter used to be her friends in college.

This book is missing the dust cover.

A little long and there are a lot of character with their own subplots. I had a little trouble with the ebonics but it was a pretty good read.

At the close of legal-thriller novelist Scott Turow's second book, The Burden of Proof, Sonia Klonsky was a young prosecutor in Kindle County Courthouse with a failing marriage, an infant daughter, and a single mastectomy. Now, as the narrator of Turow's latest novel, she's a Superior Court Judge presiding over the murder trial of one Nile Eddgar, accused of arranging the slaying of his ghetto-activist mother, June. Turow attempts a sort of social history of the 60s in this ambitious mystery, but the most vivid passages come when the gangbangers of the Black Saints Disciples take center stage.
