Any fan of mysteries and thrillers knows if you read enough of them, you'll eventually develop a knack for predicting the outcome. Read a handful of Agatha Christies and you've nailed down her pattern. Harry Bosch will prevail over evil, Spenser will find justice, Bernie will be exonerated. It doesn't diminish the fun of getting there --- I've enjoyed every one and can't wait for the next release --- but Scott Turow's legal thrillers are clearly on a different plane. They're never predictable; he can pack more surprises into a plot than you would think imaginable.

This book was not only enjoyable to read but I learned a lot as well. I had no idea the suffering ALS patients endure.

This book was not only enjoyable to read, I learned a lot about what ALS patients endure during the progression of
the disease and the toll it takes on the family members and other caregivers. I learned a lot about the law also.
I was surprised to find the extent of corruption that can be found between lawyers, judges, clerks, etc.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read and learn as the story unfolds.

I really cared about the characters in this book. The plot is finely crafted - Scott Turow is so good at that - and the story is complicated but unflinching as it proceeds to its outcome.

This book is up to the Turow high standard. However it is a little bit slow in peace and a little bit wordy and descriptive passages for me.

It started interesting enough, but I got bored with it by the time I got half way though it and didn't finish it. Below par for Turow. His first two books, Presumed Innocent and The Burden of Proof, are classics but he hasn't been as good since. I don't think I'll bother reading any more of his works. I didn't like Pleading Guilty or Identical either even though Identical had a fascinating premise which I think the author wasted.

This is not the best book that Mr. Turow has written, but this is nonetheless a good book that will hold your interest until the end. As always, Mr. Turow provides an interesting and varied cast of characters with enough detail about needs and wants, strengths and weaknesses, physical appearances and mannerisms that the reader can relate to these characters within the reader's family, friends, associates, or acquaintances.

The hero (?) of this book is doing the best that he can do while attempting to resolve what is the best that can be done for the situation that he finds himself in. The situation is devilishly complex. Like eating an artichoke, and just as delicious, the plot thickens and turns as more information about the hero (?) and his situation is revealed and the reader eagerly anticipates what the next layer will be and how it will be resolved.

Mr. Turow does an excellent job of portraying the conflicts that the hero (?) must face, but seems to have run out of pages before resolving these conflicts. This book is better than the vast majority of legal thrillers in print, but Mr. Turow is quite a talented author and the ending of this novel is less than satisfying. Mr. Turow could have done better.

I have only recently discovered Scott Turow, so I'm in the process of reading all his past books. Personal Injuries was an amazing book. The story was complex and always interesting. The characters are fascinating and realistically complex. There are many twists that genuinely surprised me. As I am finding in reading Turow's books, he is a master at including wonderfully introspective views into the individual characters and human nature in general. This book made me laugh and cry and I can't recommend it highly enough.

I almost didn't buy this book because of the many negative reviews by Amazon customers. I don't understand them now that I have read it. The characters are exquistely drawn especially the main one but also the prosecutor who exhibts all of the tunnel vision passion and ardor for his job that one who deals with prosecutors will recognize as dead on.The FBI characters with their discipline and zeal are also well built. For readers who require absolute acccuracy and believability with regard to legal matters and court room scenes, they will not be disappointed. I loved it.
Another homerun for Scott Turow. Love his books and this one was especially riveting!!
