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.

Scott Turow is an outstanding writer. He mixed the legal aspects with personal relationships giving the novel a good balance not always found in legal thrillers. If you liked "Presumed Innocent", you will love "The Burden Of Proof".
