Mystery Book Club Reversible Errors by Scott Turow Buy book: $17.64 The bestselling author of "Burden of Proof" returns with a supercharged, exquisitely suspenseful novel about a vicious triple murder and the man condemned to die for it. Further complicating the situation is that the judge who originally found the man guilty is only recently out of prison herself, having served time for taking bribes.
REVERSIBLE ERRORS is a court drama mystery. Today we are intrigued with questions of:
***Is Squirrel guilty? How can that be when he confessed and
it wasn't until 45 days from the needle of execution that
he suddenly professes his innocence.
***Will Arthur, our reluctant, court-appointed, and
inexperienced criminal lawyer get him off even after
others before have filed every possible appeal for the
last 10 years with no success? Will he get smeared by the
evil that seems to encompass the case?
***Will Arthur get the girl, sexy, sweet, heroine want-to-be,
Pamela his gung-ho assistant lawyer?
These questions and many more plague your mind as you crave to complete the reading of this novel.
I'm impressed with how much foreshadowing of plot conflicts Turow can pack into the first few pages: time line to execution date, sexual tension, family issues, prosecution vs defense pov, lawyer conpetency, idealism vs. cynicism in defense attys., etc. I might have to leave work early and check out the book this evening!
This is my first one, and I am wondering if I should save up a weeks worth so that I don't have to wait from one day to the next. I could just read the weeks worth on Friday and go buy the book on Sat.
