From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent comes a compelling new legal mystery featuring George Mason from Personal Injuries. Originally commissioned and published by The New York Times Magazine, this edition contains additional material.

Life would seem to have gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defense lawyer are long behind him. At fifty-nine, he has sat as a judge on the Court of Appeals in Kindle County for nearly a decade. Yet, when a disturbing rape case is brought before him, the judge begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it. What is troubling George Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive? And what is it about this horrific case of sexual assault, now on trial in his courtroom, that has led him to question his fitness to judge?

In LIMITATIONS, Scott Turow, the master of the legal thriller, returns to Kindle County with a suspenseful entertainment that asks the biggest questions of all. Ingeniously, and with great economy of style, Turow probes the limitations not only of the law but of human understanding itself.

Listener Opinions

    " Good thriller story but the ending was unexpected, short and a little subdued and very good introduction to George Mason as a person, judge and friend. I have skipped right through all the books after presumed innocent to go straight into Innocent, so this was a good background story on who the Judge George Mason was as a person that I have read in innocent. Am pleasantly delighted with the appearance of Rusty Sabich. "

    " Scott Turow is one of the few writers of commercial fiction who successfully combine intelligence, social consciousness, and thought-provoking subject matter within the thriller genre. The reader can always count on something more than just a mindless page turner. In Limitations, an appellate court justice finds himself the subject of e-mail threats from an unknown assailant as he attempts to juggle his decision in a high-profile rape case with circumstances from his past 40 years before. While Turow sets the stage for an excellent examination of a man under pressure in the midst of a difficult dilemma, Limitations doesn't quite follow through on its promise. The book, while good and worth reading, seems a bit too much like the outline of an excellent book that isn't fully developed. Written in serial form for a magazine, it could have used a bit more plot and character development that an additional 100 pages or so would have offered. "

    " Nice, short mystery. Easy read with a plot that really makes you ponder the morale dilemma the main character faces throughout the book. "

    " This particular paperback is a Trade edition. The main character is Judge George Mason, who faces several conflicts. His wife is just getting over having treatment for a rare form of cancer. In trying to come up with a sentence for a disturbing rape case, he is reminded of a youthful indescretion where he participated in a college prank which involved a number of college men having sex with a consenting young woman, and a personal attack on him. Scott Turow writes a compelling story--I have always enjoyed his work.-=== "
