The novel that launched Turow's career as one of America's pre-eminent thriller writers tells the story of Rusty Sabicch, chief deputy prosecutor in a large Midwestern city. With three weeks to go in his boss' re-election campaign, a member of Rusty's staff is found murdered; he is charged with finding the killer, until his boss loses and, incredibly, Rusty finds himself accused of the murder.

I made it through about 20 pages. The writing is second rate. It was so low brow and cornball I had to abandon
Don’t buy it
I have read and reread and reread this. I love finding the little clues that let you connect the dots that you never saw the first time.
I have read all of Turow's work but was apprehensive to read this one because I saw the movie. While the movie is true to the book, it has a lot of subtle differences that made it a great read...even knowing the general outcome. Even though the book was written the late 80's, the story is timeless.
