This novel is a meticulously detailed account of a celebrated murder trial. It concentrates on defense attorney Paul Biegler from the moment he accepts the case until the verdict is brought in. Biegler's client is accused of murdering a man who his wife claims assaulted her. The book leaves us wondering about the guilt and its locus -- in this case, does it belong to the dead man, to the accused or to his wife?
