The best book of his career… a riveting, impeccably crafted legal thriller… a highly charged story… Legal fiction has turned depressingly formulaic and melodramatic lately, but Scott Turow's just get richer and smarter. Funnier, too
Feaver is deftly portrayed… Unlike John Grisham, his chief rival in the legal thriller game, Mr. Turow has always demonstrated a gift for creating characters who are more than one-dimensional pawns, and Robbie Feaver is no exception
Turow is well-established as one of the greater writers of modern legal thrillers… In Personal Injuries, Turow never writes with anything less than spectacular grace… Turow's prose is beautiful and his observations, particularly the perceptions of small-scale human vulnerabilities, can take your breath away
A near-perfect story of imperfect justice, ambition and greed… In his beautifully realized new novel, Personal Injuries, Scott Turow not only knows what his reads want, he delivers just about perfectly… Turow slices hard-boiled dialogue into his moral travails as well as anyone writing now… Turow is the closest we have to a Balzac of the fin de siècle professional class
