    Robbie Feaver (pronounced Favor) is a successful personal injury lawyer, with a burgeoning practice, a way with the ladies, and a beautiful wife he loves - who is dying of an irreversible illness. He also has a secret bank account where he occasionally deposits funds which make their way into the pockets of the judges who decide Robbie's cases. Robbie is apprehended, and, in exchange for leniency, agress to wear a wire tap as he continues to try to fix decisions. The FBI agent assigned to supervise him goes by the alias of Evon Miller.

    Story

    I have read or listened to all of Scott Turow's novels and I'm a true fan of his style and writing ability. Unfortunately, I should have read Personal Injuries rather than listened to it since it's now been ruined for me by the monotonous narration in this version. Due to my long commute, I've now listened to over 60 books in the last 18 months and I have to say that I've got to rate the narration of this one as one of the worst. I could deal with the fairly implausible plot and chalked it up to some fanciful writing but it was incredibly challenging to keep my mind from wandering when the narration sounded like a bad speech delivered without any sort of inflection. The first half of the book Ken Howard ran through the dialog like his hair was on fire. He finally slowed down in the last half but the tiresome monotone pitch throughout really distracted from the plot.
