All the twists and turns kept me guessing right up until the end. It was slow to build but the wait was worth it once the case went before the judge - courtroom drama doesn't get any better than this. The audiobook narrator's somber voice fit perfectly with the tone of the book. ( )

Just re-read this again. Still couldn't put it down, even after I remembered who did what! ( )

Scott Turow has such a great writing style. He tells you only what you need to know now, keeping you second-guessing your own instincts and conclusions, and forcing you to read on. The many characters involved in this investigation are all very different from each other. They are very realistic and everyone has some kind of reputation exposed, good and bad. This isn't a "lawyer story" just for the pros. It's written for anyone to easily enjoy - and I certainly did. ( )

Masterful collection of complex characters makes this a great story to get inside. Rusty's inner dialogue throughout is revealing and thought provoking.

The long and winding journey of the story is monument to "can't put this down" and engaging the reader to the very last page. Scott Turow is truely gifted!

End of an era language: "herd of station wagons in the parking lot" by the late 1980's this was quickly transitioning to mini-vans and on to SUV's in the 90's. ( )

Book description
Presumed Innocent brings to life our worst nightmare: that of an ordinary citizen facing conviction for the most terrible of all crimes. It's the stunning portrayal of one man's all-too-human, all-consuming fatal attraction for a passionate woman who is ot his wife, and the story of how his obsession puts everything he loves and values on trial -including his own life. It's a book that lays bare a shocking world of betrayal and murder, as well as the hidden depths of the human heart.
