Overview

"Un uomo è seduto sul letto. È mio padre. Il corpo di una donna è sotto le coperte. Era mia madre. Non è qui che inizia la storia. Né è così che finisce. Ma è il momento che mi torna in mente, il modo in cui li vedo sempre." Rusty Sabich, sessant'anni appena compiuti, presidente della Corte d'Appello della Kindle County e in corsa per un posto alla Corte Suprema statale, è accusato di omicidio. Una mattina, al risveglio, trova la moglie Barbara morta nel letto accanto a lui. Aspetta però quasi un giorno prima di chiamare la polizia e i soccorsi, e non avverte nemmeno suo figlio Nat. Perché? Vuole forse cancellare tracce compromettenti? Vent'anni prima lo stesso uomo, allora viceprocuratore, era stato processato per l'omicidio di Carolyn Polhemus, sua collega e amante, e aveva avuto in Tommy Molto il suo più acerrimo accusatore. Rusty era stato infine prosciolto, ma le turbolente vicende legate al processo avevano avuto ripercussioni diverse sulla carriera dei due uomini. Il nome di Molto era stato trascinato nel fango, mentre la carriera di Rusty aveva ripreso a salire. Ma ora per lui si aprono le porte di un nuovo incubo. Le circostanze della morte di Barbara si prestano a varie interpretazioni, anche se tutto pare condurre alla sua colpevolezza, e in Tommy Molto la voglia di rivincita non si è mai sopita. Sarà un sfida senza esclusione di colpi quella che li vedrà di nuovo contrapposti in un'avvincente partita psicologica nel tentativo di catturare una verità tanto ambigua quanto sfuggente. Ventidue anni dopo Presunto innocente , romanzo che ha segnato la nascita di un nuovo genere letterario, il legal thriller, destinato nel tempo ad avere un'immensa popolarità, Scott Turow riprende i personaggi di Rusty Sabich e Tommy Molto, ancora una volta protagonisti di una storia che tiene il lettore incollato alla pagina fino alla sorprendente conclusione.

Meet the Author

Scott  Turow
Scott Turow
A lawyer-turned-writer acknowledged to be every bit as good as Grisham, if not better, Scott Turow is still working hard at turning out believable, complex legal thrillers -- and still working hard in the legal practice that fuels his writing.

Biography

In addition to writing cinematic legal thrillers like Presumed Innocent (1987), Reversible Errors (2002), and Limitations (2006), lawyer Scott Turow has also drawn upon his personal and professional experience for thought-provoking nonfiction that includes One L (1977), an account of his freshman year at Harvard Law, and Ultimate Punishment (2003), a reflection on capital punishment. His essays and op-ed pieces have appeared in the Washington Post, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, and other distinguished publications. In 2005, he forayed into historical fiction with Ordinary Heroes, an emotionally resonant novel inspired by his father's experiences in World War II. A practicing attorney with experience in both civil and criminal law, Turow has become involved in extensive pro bono work on death penalty cases.

Good To Know

Turow rarely writes his novels in a linear fashion from beginning to end. Instead, he sketches out individual scenes and then figures out where they fit into the grand scheme of a story.

Turow may be a bestselling author who has sold roughly 25 million books worldwide, but this crusading attorney has yet to give up his day job!

Don't let that "F" on your report card deter you from a writing career; just look at Turow, who flunked freshman English in high school, but whose shelves are currently lined with literary awards.
