    Story
    "This is Terrific Courtroom Drama!"

    WOW! Loved this one. But for the best listening experience -- please read "Presumed Innocent" before you jump into this one. This book can stand alone, but Presumed Innocent features the same characters 20 years prior and the two books together are unbeatable!

    Just when I thought the story was surely coming to and end and the case resolved, the story took another amazing turn that left me yearning for a 24/7 nonstop listening event. The courtroom daring of all concerned is masterfully plotted and narrated.

    I am betting you won't quite see the end coming. . . even though I can't help but feel chagrined because "I should have seen it coming!" Great writing, great story telling.

    "A Great Sequel"

    The sequel is not as suspenseful but agreat ending as to what happened to some of the Presumed Innocent characters. I enjoyed it.

    Story
    "I had never read Turow and now I know why..."

    Yes, Turow has an eye for detail but only the most boring, superficial minutia. Page after page where nothing happens, no plot is advanced, story-lines repeat. And Hermann is a monotoned snooze. Perhaps Hermann should lay off the beta blockers before he reads.
    Don't bother, even if you always wondered about Turow, and you read the glowing reviews you will come away feeling cheated. There is nothing of depth to say as there is no depth to be found in this listen.

    Story
    "So, did he kill his wife?"

    This is a sequel to “Presumed Innocent” of which I thoroughly enjoyed listening to on audible. I looked forward to reading the second book, “Innocent”, and I was not disappointed. It was a great courtroom legal thriller focusing on the trial and the views of the different characters. Good characterization too.

    If you are a reader that enjoys legal thrillers, I highly recommend this story. It is great storytelling, plus the narrators, Edward Hermann and Orlagh Cassidy, did an excellent job!

    Be sure to read the first book in the series if at all possible.

    "Decent Story"

    This was not as good as Presumed Innocent yet it was still an interesting story. Some of the characters returned from the past and it was well read. I will say, it was not till the end that I figured it out. Scott Turow really knows how to keep one's interest!

    "Loved It!"

    Could not put it down - very entertaining, satisfying, and always a surprising turn. Not just a story, but a crafted tale.

    Life long fan of the mystery story. I like books where something actually happens, so history and biography are favorites of mine also. I also think that even good books are improved tremendously when an actor performs the narration.

    "So Self Indulgent"

    Hours and hours of Rusty and Ana analyzing the meaning of love and and how life turns out the way it does. I wanted a legal thriller -- instead I got to listen in on therapy!

    Turow's first novel - Presumed Innocent - is a wonderful, tight, well written thriller -- sadly, Turow has not been able to continue at this level of authorship.

    The second star is for top notch narration by Edward Hermann.

    "Ed Hermann bombed on this one."

    With all due respect to Mr. Hermann, he reads this book so sloooooooowly it's agonizing! I want desperately to keep listening, but I can only listen in short segments because it's maddening! He pauses between words, never mind sentences! Why oh why did he read this so SLOWLY? It's a good story, I just might trying speeding up my ipod to listen though.

    "Not Bad... Not Great"

    Well, Turow did finish the story. There really were not many compelling, likeable characters in this one.

    "Disappointing"

    Let me begin by saying that if there had never been a 'Presumed Innocent' I would probably really like this book. Pretty interesting story line (except when they get bogged down in all of the computer details). But it kind of reminds me of a very smart Nora Roberts book. The plot is pretty thin when compared to 'Presumed Innocent'. The characters of Tommy Molto and Nat, Rusty's son, are fleshed out but Tommy Molto turns out to be a pretty ordinary guy who seems to be trying to do the right thing with an assistant beside him who reminds me of the devil sitting on one of your shoulders. This book is just not as smart, not as interesting, and not as well-developed as the first book. Narrator is great!
