I was looking forward to reading this book. Thank God I picked it up from the library. It actually belongs in garage sales. Not only is this book so boring and dull, it's an insult to mystery readers. There isn't even one character likeable. When I started the book I thought it would pick up. Nope. It was page after page of dribble. Turow did give us the gift of Nat, all grown up and studying law. He's written as "gorgeous" and "intelligent", however, he's a blubbering idiot. The man sobs at every turn in this crappy novel. I could only roll my eyes so much. As for the actual trial, if you're looking for something as intense and riveting as what took place in "Presumed Innocent", you are completely mistaken. If I had been on the jury I would have passed out from complete boredom.

I can't understand why Turow would want to write a sequel. Maybe trying to cash in on the success of "Presumed Innocent". Who knows and honestly, who cares.
