Pleading Guilty | [Scott Turow]

Pleading Guilty

When Gage & Griswell's star litigator suddenly disappears - along with $5.6 million of its most important client's money - the assignment of locating both goes to Mack Malloy, a 50ish ex-cop, almost ex-drunk, and partner-on-the-wane at G&G. Mack's search takes him into the inner sanctum of his firm and through the shadowy heart of the city itself, on a path that soon runs him up against his longtime nemesis as he plucks the threads of a dangerous web of corruption, deceit, and murder.

Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to Kindle County, where skies are generally gray, the truth is seldom simple, and the partners of a top-drawer corporate law firm are counting on one world-weary attorney to save them from front-page scandal and financial ruin.

When Gage & Griswell's star litigator suddenly disappears - along with $5.6 million of its most important client's money - the assignment of locating both goes to Mack Malloy, a 50ish ex-cop, almost ex-drunk, and partner-on-the-wane at G&G. Mack's search takes him into the treacherous inner sanctum of his firm and through the shadowy heart of the city itself, on a path that soon runs him up against his longtime nemesis - the odious Pigeyes - as he plucks the threads of a dangerous web of corruption, deceit, and murder.

An edge-of-the-chair journey into an ominous and enthralling world, Pleading Guilty is at once a brilliantly constructed puzzle, a relentlessly entertaining character study, and as suspenseful a story as any listener could want - a masterpiece of midwestern menace that could come only from Scott Turow.

What the Critics Say

"Though every element of the novel is polished and professional, the charisma of Mack's narration is its triumph. Add that to a taut, twist-filled plot, expert pacing, colorful and well-rendered supporting characters, and an appealing whiff of larceny, and Turow surpasses Grisham hands down." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great novel"

    I read this novel years ago, and didn't remember liking it that much. But I enjoyed it immensely with this re-reading. The characters are complex and the plot has plenty of twists and turns. The ending is a bit weak, although it would work extremely well in a film version. But that's just a little bit wrong with a great novel. The narrator is top-notch.

    "No, I didn't miss with the mouse"

    I'm a Turow fan. He's a superb storyteller and writes knowledgeably about the law and lawyers. I feel like I personally know most of his characters. But I would do my best not to know the central figure in this book (I just finished it and I can't even remember his name). This is a fine story, well told. The narration is very good. But I could not stand the protagonist. I had to listen to hours (no exaggeration) of this guy whining about what a loser he is in all areas of his life. In real life, a guy like this would send me running inside 20 minutes. Excuse me, I have some important sleeping to do. If he were actually a colleague of mine, I would hide every time I saw him coming at me in the hallway.

    "Save your money!"

    Great narrator but an extremely boring story. Very disappointing; I've been a fan of his other books but this one was painfully slow and dull.
