Nobody matches Turow... nobody

by A correspondent journalist on 12/8/2004

Turow's depth, emotional panache and vibrant intellect place him head and shoulders above his peers. Simply put, Turow writes to the thinking person. He simultaneously stimulates both the cognitive and limbic systems and touches the deepest part of one's sentient being. His writing can be appreciated on multiple levels - purple prose interludes and all. The only others, in my opinion, who have written with such great skill and intellect are Jude St. James in the nail-biting international thriller IGUANA, Tom Clancy, the late Lawrence Sanders and Nelson DeMille.

Product Overview

The bestselling author of "Burden of Proof" returns with a supercharged, exquisitely suspenseful novel about a vicious triple murder and the man condemned to die for it. Further complicating the situation is that the judge who originally found the man guilty is only recently out of prison herself, having served time for taking bribes.

Author Info
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.
Praise
"No car chases, explosions, threats against the detective, movie-star locations, or gourmet meals: just a deeply satisfying novel about deeply human people who just happen to be victims, schemers, counselors-at-law, or all three at once."
From the Publisher
Annotation Romeo Gandolph has confessed to a series of murders, but now, on death row, he takes it back--and it looks as if the case might indeed be open to review. His attorney, Arthur Raven, uncovers another suspect, who also confesses--but is this one any more reliable? To complicate the issue, the judge who issued the original sentence is serving time for bribery. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
Editors Note Corporate lawyer Arthur Raven defends the reopened case of a death-row inmate who may be innocent, while prosecuting attorneys Muriel Wynn and Larry Starczek fight for a conviction they still believe is deserved.
