Not one to throw around star ratings, I found myself completely engrossed in this account of the life of Lawyer Alejandro Stern, a fictional gentlemen who encounters events beyond his comprehension in his extended family. Thorough, intelligent, and even handed, he is forced to apply all his legal skills and principles to resolving the complex issues involving his family after an apparent suicide of his long time wife, whose mysterious affairs begun to unfold. While grieving for the loss of the only woman he has ever loved, he finds himself aroused as new romantic situations present themselves amidst the chaos of facing the trauma of his new situation where new surprises unfold before him.

okay novel @ wife suicide + complicated family

Sandy Stern, the brilliant defense attorney, faces an event so emotionally shattering that no part of his life is left untouched. It reveals a family caught in a maelstrom of hidden crimes, shocking secrets, and warring passions.

Another great one by Mr. Turow! I wish I had the time to read the rest of the books he's written. Maybe one day. ( )

This book is entertaining...but not Turow's best work. If you like to read about the sexual fantasies of a 60-year old attorney, this book is for you. The story is somewhat compelling but ends quite disappointingly (and quite predictably).

If you are reading this after 'Presumed Innocent' you will likely be disappointed. ( )
