The NY Times Book Review says Innocent by Scott Turow is a "cunning, intricate legal thriller." This is the sequel to Turow's 1987 legal thriller Presumed Innocent.
From the author's website:
More than twenty years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial of Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. When Sabich, now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow—the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.
