    Scott Turow(Author) Edward Herrmann(Narrator) Orlagh Cassidy(Narrator)
Rusty Sabich, family man & the number two prosecutor of Kindle County, was accused of murdering a former lover. Now 20 years havepassed, & Rusty, 60 years old & the chief judge of an appellate court, sits on a bed where his dead wife Barbara lies.

When it appeared in 1987, few people realised that Scott Turow’s Presumed Innocent would not only be a remarkable commercial winner (selling over 4 million copies) but would be the main instigator of a virtually new popular fiction genre -- the legal thriller. With the aid of a highly successful movie starring Harrison Ford, Turow forged a writing career that has enjoyed considerable acclaim to this day. And here, 23 years later, is Innocent, a belated sequel to that groundbreaking earlier book, in which his protagonist Rusty Sabich (now in his sixties) is once again accused of murder -- and this time he has further to fall, having become a senior court judge in the interim.

Review Text

  • By Guest on 20 September 2011

    Scott Turow has written two of the best legal thrillers I have read - Presumed Innocent and Burden of Proof. He does not have a fluent prose style, and I find the internal soul-searching of the main characters a bit hard to take at times. But my goodness at his best, can the man contrive a plot; and his courtroom scenes are just brilliant.That said, he has written some real turkeys since his glory days, and so I was a tad apprehensive about reading "Innocent". Thankfully, it's not at all bad. the book is a follow-up to "Presumed Innocent" and you really need to have read the latter to get value from the former. Innocent is not as good; the plot doesn't have the same kind of nail biting uncertainty and complexity, and sudden twists, and the trial scenes though good dont form a large part of the book, and are not in the same league as Presumed Innocent. I also find the multiple viewpoints used rather confusing a disruptive of the narrative flow; and his prose hasn't improved.But it's worth a read, particularly if you enjoyed his earlier books.
