CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist 2010.

CWA Judges’ comments: 'A masterful legal thriller exploring personal responsibility and the damage wrought by malice. Expertly handled sequel to Presumed Innocent.'

If you like Scott Turow you might also like to read books by Sebastian Faulks, John Hart and William Landay.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Scott Turow’s Presumed Innocent was a template for the legal thriller field, with a fascinating mass of detail giving weight to its plausibility. The book was narrated by Rusty Sabich, a married prosecuting attorney. After his ex-lover Carolyn is murdered, Sabich found himself accused of the murder, but the real killer was close to home. It was a terrific book, but by penning a sequel 23 years later, Turow has made himself something of a hostage to fortune. In Innocent, Rusty is now 60 and a senior appeal court judge. He finds himself once again accused of murder – his disturbed wife Barbara is the victim. The most incriminating circumstances involve the fact that Rusty woke up to find his wife dead at his side but waited (without apparent reason) for a full day before notifying anyone. What is the reason behind his damning silence?

Synopsis

Innocent by Scott Turow

Twenty years ago, Tommy Molto charged his colleague Rusty Sabich with the murder of a former lover; when a shocking turn of events transformed Prosecutor Rusty from the accuser into the accused. Rusty was cleared, but the seismic trial left both men reeling. Molto's name was dragged through the mud and while Rusty regained his career, he lost much more...Now, Rusty - sixty years old and a chief judge - wakes to a new nightmare. His wife Barbara has died in suspicious circumstances and once again, he is the prime suspect. Reunited with his charismatic lawyer Sandy Stern, Rusty will do anything to convince his beloved son Nat of his innocence. But what is he hiding? In an explosive trial which will expose lies, jealousy, revenge, corruption, and the darker side of human nature, Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto will battle it out to finally discover the real meaning of truth, and of justice.
