UPDATE: The second half is not as strong as the first half. Basically, once the trial starts, I started skimming. The reveal or conclusion at the end is sort of "eh." Also, I kept waiting for them to address or re-reveal the conclusion of the first book ("Presumed Innocent") which has a DIRECT (I thought) bearing on the second book and....they never did. Huh? I mean, maybe he didn't want to spoil it for people who hadn't read the first book but....that made no sense to me and seemed like this ever present elephant in the room.....
Bought in the airport, surprisingly easy to get into and good. Didn't read Presumed Innocent ("Innocent" is the sequel), but saw the movie, so maybe that has helped me be absorbed quickly.
Note: the chapters alternate being told by 3-4 different people and jumps around on a timeline a bit, but the book does a great job of visually laying out where on the timeline the chapter is happening and who is telling it. Thanks for the help, book! (seriously, thanks for not making me fend for myself)
