The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark bestseller Presumed Innocent, INNOCENT continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, twenty years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.
It's been more than two decades since Edward Hermann narrated Presumed Innocent, splendidly interpreting the voices of that book's main characters: hapless protagonist Rusty Sabich on trial for the murder of his lover; his shrewd defense attorney, Sandy Stern; and the determined prosecutor, Tommy Molto. Now that Turow has brought the trio back for a sequel, cleverly arranging them, after all these years, in a roughly analogous situation, it's only natural for Hermann to be back on board, too, performing with the same eloquence and subtlety that distinguished his earlier work. This time, following the author's lead, he presents a more philosophic Sabich, an ill but no less wily Stern, and a kinder, gentler Molto. And because a new character, Chief Justice Sabich's attractive young law clerk Anna Vostic, narrates several chapters, Hermann is assisted by Orlagh Cassidy, who smartly conveys both the wistfulness and strength of the new key player in this never less than engrossing multilayered drama-whodunit.

1 . Book I couldn't put down!
Posted July 16, 2010 by Jules , Huntington Beach, CAI found this book very enjoyable to read and quite suspenseful! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see if Rusty did it or not...........I kept changing my mind thoughout the book. Great read!
2 . Too Long of a Wait
Posted June 11, 2010 by Kevin , Summerville, SCIt's seemingly been so long since Turow released his last book, I'd forgotten how good of a writer he is. A really entertaining and enjoyable read... a great summer book!
3 . Suspenseful and a page turner....
Posted May 11, 2010 by Pat , New YorkIn the beginning of the book, it seemed to rely on sex scenes. The language throughout was not good. The story stood on its own and would have been better without being graphic. I felt that this was one of Scott Turow's best books.
4 . Great Read
