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.

Rusty is the prime suspect. Reunited with his charismatic lawyer Sandy Stern, he will do anything to convince his beloved son, Nat, of his innocence. But what is he hiding?

In an explosive trial which will expose lies, jealousy, revenge, corruption, and the darker side of human nature, Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto will battle it out to finally discover the real meaning of truth, and of justice.

    "So-so"

    Any sympathy you may have developed for Rusty in "Presumed Innocent" is quickly destroyed in "Innocent". You realize what a poor excuse for a person he really is. This sequel is too long, too wordy and the ending is unsatisfying. Also, the first part of the story jumps around in time quite a bit. While this is not much of a problem when reading a book, it does make an audiobook harder to follow. I would not recommend this book unless you are a die-hard Scott Turow fan.

    "Worth listening to because it's a sequel"

    Once again Edward Hermann did an outstanding job narrating. Not as good as Presumed Innocent. But I still enjoyed listening to it. I think Rusty thinks he is above all the rules. And the rules don't apply to him.

    "Didn't finish"

    This is awful work and I couldn't finish it. The plot is contrived, the characters implausible, and the flavor mawkish. The male narrator tries to make up for failed writing with dramatic delivery, compounding the failure. The female narrator reads like an unpaid library intern and never inhabits the part.

    Audiobooks should volunteer refunds for this work.

    "Rusty Returns"

    Since Rusty and I are the same age, I feel like I checked in with my acquaintance from 20 or so years ago and got an update on his life. It was a great read and I enjoyed it all the way to Oregon. Then we parted company yet again.

    "Avoid"

    Presumed innocent was much better. There are huge implausibilities in the story, it is way too long, and the son who cries all the time is simply annoying.

    "Guilty!"

    This sequel is disappointing on every level; plot, description, length, and characters. The story and characters are shallow and self-absorbed. I greatly regret the wasted time. The story doesn't get better as it continues hour after boring hour. If you have to listen to this story, get the abridged version. Is there a one-hour version? I've often enjoyed the narrator in other works, however, a story as poor as this makes him look bad.

    "Interesting"

    This was a great listen. It kept my attention through the entire story. I would suggest this story to anyone that wants to be surprised.

    "The Perfect Sequel"

    I really enjoyed reading "Presumed Innocent" two decades ago and remembering both after the book and the moview....how could these people carry on? Turow shows us not only the characters' current existence but how they got there. Turow takes no short cuts as he shows the full emotions of each major character and more often than not (as was the strongest theme in the first book) things are not as they appear.

    Narration was excellent - great summer listen.

    "Superb"

    Beautifully conceived and written, and I can't imagine better narration. I'm now close to the final chapter, not wanting it to end.

    "good read"

    this is a particularly entertaining crime novel if you read or watched Presumed Innocent. It's interesting to meet the characters 20 years later. I didn't love the male narrator--at times his narration interfered with my enjoyment, but overall a credit worthy selection.
