    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Overall

    When I read "Presumed Innocent" in 1987, it was my first experience with a book that I simply could not put down. I read it cover-to-cover without stopping to sleep. "Innocent" is not quite that engrossing, but it is still a worthy successor. It is a fine story, well told.

    I'm obviously no professional book critic, but I cannot resist mentioning just two reasons why I think this book is special.

    First, I've practiced law as a lawyer and judge for 31 years, and I just go crazy when fiction writers bend the law or legal procedure to fit their story. Turow, who is a lawyer, constructs his story to fit neatly and believably within the law. That attention to detail makes it much easier for me to suspend my disbelief and become absorbed in the tale.

    Second, in "Innocent," Turow really nails the psyche of the sixty-ish male professional. Rusty Sabich's fears, ambitions, regrets and longings ring true time after time. For me, the novel was as much about Rusty's change from man to older man as it was about crime and death.

    I simply cannot recommend this novel highly enough. If you have not already read "Presumed Innocent," read that first, but in any event, read this book.
