Editor Reviews
From the front Cover Praise for author Scott Turow: No one writes better mystery suspense novels than Scott Turow.-- Los Angeles Times Scott Turow not only knows what his readers want, he delivers just about perfectly. . . . Turow is the closest we have to a Balzac of the fin de siècle professional class.-- Chicago Tribune Turow has set new standards for the genre, most notably in the depth and subtlety of his characterizations. . . . The kind of reading pleasure that only the best novelists--genre or otherwise--can provide.-- The New York Times Of all the lawyer-storytellers who have clambered onto the bestseller lists in recent years, Scott Turow is the champ. Not only are his plots absorbing and his characters persuasive, but his sentences flow with an artful cadence.--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post Book World Turow brings a literary sensibility to a grit-and-gravel genre: if he calls to mind any comparison, it's to John le Carré. His novels are shaped by [a] studied bleakness, an introspect's embrace of the gray-zone ambiguities of modern life.--Gail Caldwell, Boston Sunday Globe Turow is well established as one of the greater writers of modern legal thrillers. . . . Turow's prose is beautiful and his observations, particularly the perceptions of small-scale human vulnerabilities, can take your breath away.-- The Times (London) One begins with admiration for Turow's skillful evocation of the thrill of detection; one finishes fascinated by his deft probing of the mysteries of character and family. Like John le Carré in the realm of spy novels and P. D. James in that of mysteries, Scott Turow has the goods to transcend the limitations of the genre.--Dan Cryer, Newsday
