About this title

Synopsis:

Read by Joe Mantegna
Four Cassettes, 6 Hours

Robbie Feaver (pronounced Favor) is a successful personal injury lawyer, with a burgeoning practice, a way with the ladies, and a beautiful wife he loves--who is dying of an irreversible illness.  He also has a secret bank account where he occasionally deposits funds which make their way into the pockets of the judges who decide Robbie's cases.

Robbie is apprehended, and, in exchange for leniency, agress to wear a wire tap as he continues to try to fix decisions.  The FBI agent assigned to supervise him goes by the alias of Evon Miller.  She is stocky, lonely, uncomfortable in her skin, and impervious to Robbie's charms.  And she carries secrets of her own.  As the law tightens its net, Robbie's and Evon's stories converge thrillingly and, ultimately, tragically.  Turow shows us new sides to Kindle County, the world of greed and human failing he has made immortal in Presumed Innocent, The Burden of Proof, Pleading Guilty, and The Laws of Our Fathers.  He also shows us enduring love and quiet, enexpected heroism.  Personal Injuries is Turow's most reverberant, most moving novel--a powerful drama of individuals trying to escape their character.
