really liked it

Scott Turow is more than a writer of legal thrillers. He is a real novelist using the law to reflect on human ego and weakness. His Kindle County, where all of his novels actions take place, is not exactly a moral wasteland but a soiled and imperfect place where there are no easy solutions. His main character in this novel, Sandy Stern, a cosmopolitan defense attorney, lends this novel real gravity with his impressions and his understanding that the law is something of a slipshod negotiation between our innate good and sinfulness. His more secondary character, Dixon Hartnell is a real American type. Besides that, Turow does solid plots and creates a vivid story. This book is timeless. Good for the weekend reader as well as the serious one.
