The star litigator from a top-notch law firm has gone missing , along with 5.6 million dollars from a class-action settlement, and "Mack" Malloy, a foul-mouthed ex-cop and partner-on-the-wane must find both. Immediately. Turow's third novel takes us back to Kindle County, where skies are generally gray and the truth is seldom simple, in an edge-of-the-chair story rife with indelible characters and riveting suspense.

Rommy "Squirrel" Gandloph is an inmate on death row for a 1991 triple murder. His slow progress toward execution is nearing completion when Arthur Raven, a corporate lawyer and Rommy's reluctant representative, receives word of new evidence that will exonerate Gandolph. Arthur's opponent is the formidable prosecuting attorney Muriel Wynn. Together with Larry Starczek, the original detective on the case, she is determined to see Rommy's fate sealed. Meanwhile the judge who originally found him guilty is just out of prison herself. Scott Turow's compelling, multi-dimensional characters take the reader into Kindle County's parallel yet intersecting worlds of weary police, small-time crooks and ambitious lawyers. No other writer offers such a convincing picture of how the law and life interact - or such a profound understanding of what is at stake when the state holds the power to end a man's life.

Scott Turow has again taken his time to produce his newest blockbuster novel. Three years in the making since The Laws of Our Fathers, his previous bestseller, Personal Injuries is another legal thriller of the highest calibre, or as Newsweek commented, "Turow's novels...transcend their genre. They are literature that will last." Robbie Feaver is one of Kindle County's most successful personal injury lawyers. Expensively cologned, lavishly cocooned in his white Mercedes, he is his own most deeply prized possession. A beautiful, dying wife lying in bed at their elegant home does not stop him from using his considerable masculine charms in a parade of not-so-secret affairs. Robbie's bigger secret is a hidden bank account where he occasionally deposits funds handed over to judges presiding over his - usually successful - cases. Robbie has been caught, and, in exchange for leniency, agrees to "wear a wire" as he continues to engage in his corrupt pursuit of getting his decisions fixed. Only the FBI insists that someone must shadow his every move during the operation, just to make sure he remains a good boy. That FBI agent goes by the alias of Evon (pronounced "even") Miller, a lonely, uncomfortable-in-her-skin woman whose steely armor seems steadfast against Robbie's maneuvers. Like Robbie, she too has secrets. As the sting proceeds, in an operation that could topple the entire Kindle County justice system like a house of cards, Robbie and Evon find their lives intersecting - thrillingly, then tragically, with consequences no one - least of all, the reader - could predict. Scott Turow reveals another expanse of the Kindle County landscape, the world of greed and moral doubt, where the law is often an inadequate tool for balancing the scale of right and wrong. At the same time he uncovers enduring love and unexpected courage, producing a novel that is resonant and moving, a wholly powerful and un-put-down-able drama.
