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.

"Spellbinding.... The suspense is relentless.... Surprise follows surprise.... The work of a profoundly gifted writer." (The New York Times)
I did not realize that this book was written so long ago. I also did not know that it was made into a movie a few years after the book was written. I will be renting the movie, for sure. This book was a little slow in some areas, but overall it was a good read and a good story. I will be checking out Scott Turow's other books.
This is my first listen of Scott Turow, and I'm looking forward to another.
The narrator was an excellent choice, and I am very picky about narrators. I don't believe I've listened to Edward Hermann before, but he was very good.
It's very important to listen to the details in the first couple of hours because this information is important later in the book. Also, if you're not paying attention (I listen while driving to work) the scenes change.
The story line and characters are wonderful. The best legal thriller I've listened to in a while. You won't be disappointed.
yes, distracting story.
no... but kept me listening. Voice got repetitive, not much inflection.
just wait .....
At the top of the list..it keeps you curious as to the hidden relationships of the characters and how they play into solving the crime.
Good accents that capture and separate the characters personalities.
When you find out the mystery of the glass.
Presumed Innocent is a classic, an always enjoyable listen!
I wanted to listen and listen but I never wanted it to end....VERY well written!
It is a great story line and interesting. The author, as with his other books, spends way to much time on inane details and diatribes. This is the second one of his books I have read and probably will not read anymore.
The performance was excellent but the boring interludes detracted from it.
One case where the book is better than the movie. I would have enjoyed this more if I had not seen the movie, nor already knew the premise and ending, but I was still interested in the characters and development of the plot.
One of the best books I've listened to in a while. New to this author, but so glad that I took the chance!
I just couldn't stop listening!!! This book started out a bit slow and I wondered where it would end up. WOW!! Twists everywhere. Great characters, wonderful reader and all-around good story. I plan to read more Turow!
I read this book when it was first published and thought it was good. The audiobook was so much better. Edward Herrmann was a surprise. His narration translated a good book into a moving experience. The beautiful prose written by Turrow was was brought to life.For these reasons, I would say this is a must listen. It's much more that just a courtroom drama.Do yourself a favor and try it.
