The Last Trial

Political / Legal Thrillers Thriller and Suspense

The Last Trial Synopsis

'The master is back and in The Last Trial Scott Turow takes it to another level' - David Baldacci From the bestselling author of Presumed Innocent, Scott Turow's The Last Trial recounts the final case of Kindle County's most revered courtroom advocate, Sandy Stern. On the brink of retirement, legendary defence attorney Sandy Stern is persuaded to take on one last case to defend an old friend. Dr Kiril Pafko, a former Nobel Prize winner and distinguished cancer researcher, is now, shockingly, facing charges of fraud, insider trading and even murder. As the trial progresses, Stern will question everything he thought he knew about his friend. Despite Pafko's many failings, is he innocent of the terrible charges laid against him? Stern's duty to defend his client and his belief in the power of the judicial system will face a final, terrible test in the courtroom, where the evidence and reality are sometimes worlds apart . . . 'Grisham might do it more often, but Turow does it so much better' - Observer

Turow is worthy to be ranked with Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler - New York Times

Grisham might do it more often, but Turow does it so much better - Observer

Turow follows the courtroom proceedings so closely that at times the novel almost feels like being on jury duty, though few trials could be this interesting in real life. The novel's greatest strength, however, is its poignant depiction of the emotional toll of the case, as Stern is forced to reconsider the nature of his friendship, his legacy and his mortality. - The Times

The Last Trial is Scott Turow at his best and most ambitious. He has elevated the genre once again - Washington Post

The master is back and in The Last Trial Scott Turow takes it to another level . . . A writer with few peers -- David Baldacci, Number One Bestselling Author -
