Turow is often great. This is more detailed & slightly different from the excellent movie. This reader is hard to beat, although at time I found it repetitive & it does jump from one time period to another.

Following the story of prosecuting attorney Rusty Sabich, the novel's protagonist, is to be a part of his desperate, noir-ish world where the chronic sting of middle-age regret hurts as much as any suffering. Rusty has built a successful law career, one that most would be envious of, but the man leads a damaged life fraught with many wrong turns. Some were bad strokes of luck; others were entirely his fault. Past and present, nature versus nurture--all of this will come into play as you weigh the circumstances he finds himself in.

Presumed Innocent was recommended to me primarily for its clever ending. So throughout the reading I knew to expect one and yet it still caught me completely by surprise. This novel succeeds on many fronts and should be a timeless classic in the mystery genre for decades to come.

Although this book was written 25 years ago, it does give the reader an inside look at how court proceedings work, and all the politics involved in a murder trial. I liked the book, excellent twist at the end.
