Pleading Guilty by Scott Turow is easier to read than Filth by Irvine Welsh, but the self-destructive protagonist still got on my nerves. I enjoyed the book more when I started skipping paragraphs of internal dialog to get back to the action. Mack is an ex-cop, washed-up lawyer, and recovering alcoholic. When a partner at his firm goes AWAL (with 5.6 million dollars) the managing committee shanghais Mack into looking for him. Or rather, the 5.6 million, because it turns out that very few people at the firm care much about the missing partner.

I think he's one of the more underrated authors in the mystery genre. He tells a complex story that is sometimes hard to follow, and this is another financial-type mystery. Loved the ending.

Good story but, sort of dry and more description/s than necessary.

This is a tale that keeps you guessing. Our hero is an almost-washed-up lawyer--a partner in a major firm. He is on a quest to save the firm's reputation by finding a senior partner who has apparently absconded with millions of a major client's money. But, things may not always be what they seem...
