I read this while living in Watertown, MA. That would have been 1989-90. As I recall, Steve Billhardt recommended this to me. I picked it up and began reading it one morning. I was captivated. The day wore on and it occurred to me I wasn't going to have it completed before I had to go to work. I strongly considered blowing off work just to finish it. I didn't, but recall rushing home after closing the restaurant to finish this book off. It captivated me that much.

Later, the movie would be released. I thought it was pretty good, but not as compelling as the writing.

The twist at the end is not what I envisioned. This was a mystery that was written well, conceived well, and captured the reader's attention. All that, but I haven't returned to read any of Turow's other works.
