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, agrees 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. She is stocky, lonely, uncomfortable in her skin, and impervious to Robbie's charms. And she carries secrets of her own. As the law tightens its net, Robbie's and Evon's stories converge thrillingly and, ultimately, tragically.
Turow shows us new sides to Kindle County, the world of greed and human failing he has made immortal in Presumed Innocent, The Burden of Proof, Pleading Guilty, and The Laws of Our Fathers. He also shows us enduring love and quiet, enexpected heroism. Personal Injuries is Turow's most reverberant, most moving novel - a powerful drama of individuals trying to escape their character.

Turow is one of the best in writing legal thrillers and you can't get any better than having Joe Mantegna be the reader.
Turow's books always highlight different aspects of the practice of law. Being a former prosecutor myself I always find his writings to be on point and beliveable.
I had forgotten how good Mr. Turow's work was back when he did these regularly. This is a great story and Joe Mantegna was great, as always. It has been a while but I am once again wondering why Grisham got so much more attention that Mr. Turow.
