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.
From the Publisher:
Now available in trade paperback, "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.
Annotation:
With PRESUMED INNOCENT, Scott Turow jettisoned his career, and demonstrating its potential, he elevated the status of the legal thriller, masterfully weaving together a suspenseful mystery story with deep characterization. Looking down the road to his fortieth birthday, Rusty Sabich outwardly seems successful: a job as the chief deputy prosecutor is not bad and his marriage is still in tact. But dig just below the surface and it becomes obvious that his career hasn't progressed in years and his marriage is dysfunctionally unhappy. An affair with a colleague, Carolyn Polhernus, spiced things up, until she abruptly cut things off. His ego is still slightly bruised when shocking news arrives--Carolyn has been raped and murdered. Unaware of Rusty and Carolyn's connection, his boss, Raymond Horgan, who is in the midst of a brutal reelection campaign, assigns Rusty to quickly resolve this politically disastrous situation. At first Rusty plods along with his investigation, allowing himself to indulge fantasies and memories of his affair with Carolyn. But when Horgan loses the election, things take a sudden turn and Rusty gets fingered for Carolyn's murder. As Rusty seeks to prove his innocence, Turow leads readers through a wholly compelling story that, without ever losing its plot-line tension, reveals with heated courtroom drama the ins and outs of the legal profession and much about the complexity of human motivation.
Author Bio
Scott Turow
Scott Turow is one of the most prominent and influential writers in the genre of legal thrillers. A very successful lawyer, he has maintained a career as an attorney while writing roughly one book every three years. Many of his books have topped bestsellers lists, including his 1987 debut novel, PRESUMED INNOCENT, and the much anticipated sequel published in 2010, INNOCENT. Other popular novels include PERSONAL INJURIES and BURDEN OF PROOF, which was adapted as a television mini series. He has also published several works of non-fiction, including ONE L, his first-hand account of the notoriously terrible first year of law school, as well as short pieces for magazines and newspapers.||Born in Chicago, Turow graduated from Amherst College before moving to the west coast to study creative writing at Stanford University. A few years after finishing at Stanford, Turow enrolled in Harvard Law School, graduating in 1978 and going to work as an Assistant United States Attorney in Chicago. A partner at a Chicago firm, Turow balances his legal and writing careers with charitable and pro bono work, such as serving on boards and playing in a for-charity rock band with other writers. His writing has received critical acclaim--including the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award and Time Magazine's Best Work of Fiction award. Turow married the painter Annette Weisberg in 1971, has three children, and lives near Chicago.
