    Presumed Innocent brings to life our worst nightmare: that of an ordinary citizen facing conviction for the most terrible of crimes. Prosecutor Rusty Sabich is transformed from accuser to accused when he is handed an explosive case - that of the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover.

    Glen says: "Excellent Book, Gripping Entertainment!"
    "Intellectual thriller"
    Overall

    After reading some of the other reviews I was apprehensive about the book and almost didn't purchase it. I'm glad that I did. I found that the book is an intellectual thriller. It is however for adults only.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    J. Rhoderick says: "A great read!"
    "Good long listen"
    Overall

    This was written some time in the 70's so technology that we have today wasn't even dreamed of yet, but the story is worth listening to. A bit on the long side, but so was Lucifer's Hammer.

    Story

    Charles de Gaulle's withdrawal from Algeria invoked fury, but six assassination attempts had failed against the general. This novel postulates that the seventh, mostly deadly attempt involved a professional killer-for-hire who would be unknown to the French police. His code name: Jackal. His price: half a million dollars. His demand: total secrecy, even from his employers.

    Rebecca says: "intriguing novel, flawed narration"
    "Sound quality is Terriblele"
    Overall

    I couldn't even listen to the book as the sound quality is terrible, very garbled. Tried with ear buds which was a bit better, but playing it through the car speakers was impossible. This has been the only book from audible that I've had this problem with.
