“Innocent” is the sequel to the book, “Presumed Innocent” by the same author. Turow wrote the first book almost 20 years ago. If you have not read Presumed Innocent, you might want to check it out of our library and read it prior to hearing the review of “Innocent.”

“Innocent” picks up with the lives of some of same characters that appeared in the first book. Rusty Sabich, Assistant District Attorney 20 years ago, is now Chief Justice of the Appellate Court. We see Tommy Molto again, who was also a prosecutor twenty years prior and Sabich’s nemesis.  Once again, Sabich is involved in murder.

This book is for anyone who likes unexpected endings and courtroom drama’s.

“Presumed Innocent,” if anyone remembers, was made into a movie which starred Harrison Ford. It was an immediate hit that followed the book, which was a best seller. Maybe “Innocent” is destined for the same course.

If you have never read Scott Turow, then you are certainly in for a treat. He has written several books in the set in similar courtroom backgrounds, which are outstanding.

Join us September 21st at 12 noon in the conference room and bring a bag lunch if you  would like to eat as we review. Drinks and desserts are provided by the friends of the Library. If you are not a member of “The Friends” this would be a good time to come find out about us and join.

Just remember to support our local library as it is one of our community’s greatest assets.
