The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark bestseller Presumed Innocent, INNOCENT continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, twenty years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.
Thirteen years after publishing the seminal legal thriller PRESUMED INNOCENT, Scott Turow gives readers the second chapter in Rusty Sabich's story. Over twenty years have passed since the events of PRESUMED, but like a sinister episode of déjà vu, circumstances seem to be repeating themselves. Rusty is now the county's chief appellate judge, but that does not put him above the law. When his wife unexpectedly dies in her sleep, prosecutor Tommy Molto--who unsuccessfully led the case against Rusty years before when he was accused of killing his mistress--immediately suspects the judge. And so the battle of legal wits is on. Mixing things up a bit, Turow tells the first part of the story from both lawyers' perspectives, but the second half is classic Turow: passionate and smart, nail-biting courtroom scenes that will leave fans thrilled by his resurrection of these characters. Selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.
