Another great crime and courtroom drama by Scott Turow. This one hinges on the innocence of a man about to be executed, one with a fairly low IQ and a very bad alibi accused of murdering three people a long time ago. A public defender assigned to the case discovers that the case is much more complicated than it seems. No surprise there. The book follows two different couples whose lives are wrapped up in this case and shows how the crime that was committed over a decade ago is still messing with their lives. If you like Turow, you’ll like this.
