Scott Turow's Pleading Guilty takes us back to Kindle County, where skies are generally gray and the truth is seldom simple, in an edge-of-the-chair story rife with indelible characters and riveting suspense.
The star litigator from a top-notch law firm has gone missing, along with 5.6 million dollars from a class-action settlement, and "Mack" Malloy, a foul-mouthed ex-cop and partner-on-the-wane must find both. Immediately.
“Mr. Turow's prose is powerful ... a tough, vivid urban poetry, singing of ambition and corruption.... an arresting performance.” —The New York Times
“Though every element of the novel is polished and professional, the charisma of Mack's narration is its triumph. Add that to a taut, twist-filled plot, expert pacing, colorful and well-rendered supporting characters, and an appealing whiff of larceny, and Turow surpasses Grisham hands down.” —Publishers Weekly
“His legions of fans surely won't miss the chance to see Turow as they've never seen him before.” —Kirkus Reviews
