Book Club Friday-- Presumed Innocent.

GoodReads Synopsis:  In Presumed Innocent, Rusty Sabich, family man and the number-two prosecutor of Kindle County, is handed an explosive case -- the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover. A shocking turn of events suddenly transforms him from the accuser into the accused and plunges him into a nightmare world where nothing seems real and no one can be presumed innocent.

My Thoughts:  I really, really liked this story.  I thought the author spend way too much time telling us what the narrator was thinking and daydreaming about than what was actually happening though.  But since this was Scott Turow's first novel, I'll let it slide.  What I loved was that he wrote the protagonist so ambiguously that I wasn't sure until almost the very end if he was innocent or not.  That made him a difficult guy to pull for, but it also made it a very interesting read.  And the sub-plot gave took some very interesting turns.  I definitely recommend this one, and am anxious to read the sequel!
