Presumed Innocent is the internationally bestselling, gripping legal thriller from Scott Turow.

Prosecutor Rusty Sabich enters a nightmare world when Carolyn, a beautiful attorney with whom he has been having an affair, is found raped and strangled. He stands accused.

Fighting to prove his innocence, Rusty uncovers a tangled web of sex, corruption and betrayal. With no one to trust, it's up to Rusty to uncover who is really behind this deadly crime . . .

This 'insider' book by a Chicago lawyer was made into a film starring Harrison Ford. It's a supremely suspenseful and compelling courtroom drama about ambition, weakness, hypocrisy and American justice.

It grips like an octopus, and Turow unwinds the plot with brilliant cat-and-mouse meanness
