About this title


Late one spring afternoon, Alejandro Stern, the brilliant defense lawyer from Presumed Innocent, comes home from a business trip to find that Clara, his wife of thirty years, has committed suicide. In this book, Turow probes the character of this fascinating and complex man as Stern tries to uncover the truth about his wife's life.

From the Publisher:

Presumed Innocent was the fiction debut of the decade--a magnetic work of suspense that earned Turow acclaim for his unparalleled storytelling gifts. Now, in a brilliant follow-up, Scott Turow stakes his claim as an American master, in a mesmerizing novel of law, family and deceit. Alejandro "Sandy" Stern--the brilliant defense lawyer from Presumed Innocent--comes home to discover that his wife of 30 years has committed suicide, leaving behind a web of mystery, money and guilt. While Stern hunts for answers, he is caught up in the threatened Federal prosecution of his most powerful and troublesome client--his own brother-in-law. Now, after a life of success, Sandy Stern is a man in desperate need of many truths--about his family, his uncertain future and the troubled legacy his wife left behind.
