Hailed as the most suspenseful and compelling novel in decades, 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 not 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. And it will hold you and haunt you...long after you have reached its shattering conclusion.

A murder mystery involving an attorney who's convicted of murdering a co-worker after it's been found out that he's had an affair with her. Quite like the Lincoln Lawyer. I liked this book because the author recognized that all his readers might not understand all the terminology, so he provided definitions. What made the thriller enjoyable was that it had a plot twist when it revealed the real killer.

This is a great novel about our judicial system warts and all. It is what each and every person accused of a crime is placed in the maze to be lost to then be freed or imprisoned in the end. Justice may have nothing to do with the outcome.

Fast read. Nice plot twist and strong character development.

An early book by one of my favourite authors, Scott Turow. A terrific courtroom drama with many twists until the end.
Great characterisations and storytelling.
The "sequel", Innocent, followed many years later with most of the same characters. I thought it was even a better mystery than the first.
Most of his books are worth reading since they elevate the courtroom genre to a whole new level. One exception: The Laws of Our Fathers; much too long and too much backstory. The trial is only a small part of the story but the best part.

Beautifully written court room drama, full of male human emotion. Yes, it seems they do have some. Highly recommended. Then follow a little later by the sequel, "Innocent." Not too original but equally well written from the male perspective. Both well worth reading.
