    Scott Turow has written a supercharged, exquisitely suspenseful novel about a vicious triple murder and the man condemned to die for it. No other writer offers such a profound understanding of what is at stake when the state holds the power to end a man's life.

    Kent says: "An engaging story"
    "Reversible Errors"
    Overall

    I have been a fan of Scott Turow for years and I feel that Scott has lost focus on what he does best, writing mysteries that challenge the mind and his depiction of high tension court room episodes with dueling attorneys at their best.
    Today his books are filled pages with frivolous uninteresting and unimportant boring dialog that becomes the story and does nothing to enhance what ever it was he started out writing about. After rowing my way through several hours of part #1 I am left wondering what's happened here?
    90%chaff and 10% wheat is more then I can handle.
    I'm going to take a pass on part two and look for an author that is more focused on writing story then selling words.

    Story

    This magnificent novel is about the murder of a miserly, aged pawnbroker and her younger sister by a radical, destitute St. Petersburg student named Raskolnikov, and the emotional, mental, and physical effects that follow. It is a remarkable masterpiece about a man's turbulent inner life and his relationship to others and to society at large. Dostoevsky explored the human condition on many levels in this great piece, and among the main themes the novel explores is the rather strange theory that criminals have a spiritual need to be punished - that indeed they demand it.

    Marsha says: "Perfect narrator!"
    "Crime and punishment"
    Overall

    Boring, everything drags out, takes for ever to get any where. Loose interest trying to fallow the thread of the story.
    I listened to it for hours and had to force myself to continue.
    I never did finish it.
    It may be a clasic but I can't figur out why.

    Story

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    Overall

    May be the best Burke book yet !
    It grabs you up front and never let's go. One high tension wave after another. Burkes great vocabulary challenges, stimulates and separates Burke's books from the paper mill detective stories.
