To Robbie Feaver, the law is all about making a play—to a client, a jury, or a judge. But when the flashy, womanizing, multimillion-dollar personal injury lawyer is caught offering bribes, he’s forced to wear a wire. Even as the besieged attorney looks after his ailing wife, Feaver must also make tapes that will hurl his friends, his enemies, his city, and a particular FBI undercover agent into a crisis of conscience and law. Now Robbie Feaver is making the play of his life.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean Hollandsworth | 2/9/2014

    " The last of the Kindle County Legal Thrillers in my collection. Started slow but built as it went along. Another great example of Turow's character development. Not wild about the ending, but getting there was sort of fun. May be more entertaining than Pleadin Guilty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Horgan | 1/27/2014

    " A great legal thriller. Even though its old, the story is still fresh - especially considering what's going on in the City of Detroit with Monica Conyers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry | 1/18/2014

    " Very procedurally oriented, I kept waiting for some action but none arrived. The dealing and double dealing, mistrust of government with the good guys being as duplicitous as the bad guys give it a uniquely American tone. The lead character, Rob Feaver, is the most sympathetic of the players, but he is the one who seems to have committed the crimes as a government task force investigates corruption amongst judges in a fictitious American city. There are almost no judges who are not considered corrupt or worth corrupting. The main villain remains out of the limelight and is never caught. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martin | 1/16/2014

    " good book to procrastinate from studying "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 1/15/2014

    " Turow is one of my favorite legal authors. here he has Robbie Feaver, a personal injury lawyer who has made an art form of taking bribes. Good mindless read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 With Butterflies | 1/10/2014

    " I have no idea why it took me so damned long to read this book, but it did. The characters were interesting and the plot moved along nicely, but I just couldn't get through more than about 20 pages at at time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancie | 1/8/2014

    " It took some time to get into, but Turow did a wonderful job of bringing the characters -- some of whom appear in other Kindle County books -- to life. Every character had his or her flaws; the "bad" guy was really pretty nice, the "good" guy was an asshole. Stick with it, it's worth the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee | 12/24/2013

    " Well written, but way too detailed & too long. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 User3162 | 12/18/2013

    " I didn't care for the main character and the story seemed to drag on and on. I would have given it one star, but it did have an interesting ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 12/2/2013

    " Pretty good. Court corruption, yadda, yadda. Very, almost overly detailed, more about characters than plot. Good side plot about protagonist's wifes ALS "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chele | 7/12/2013

    " Not the greatest legal drama I've read, but far from the worst. Some interesting characters, with some good sub-plots. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 11/1/2012

    " A sometimes long story about a legal case with a FBI informant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 10/13/2012

    " Ron - 4 stars; Nancy - 3 stars "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cherylck | 4/22/2012

    " I think the follow up from this book was recommended and I wanted to pick them up and read them together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 2/14/2012

    " This had enought twists and turns to make it interesting. I don't know if I'd call it believable but it was fun, in its way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lee Ann | 2/7/2012

    " Reading this book was one of the worst wastes of time! It was awful, badly written and hard to follow. I couldn't even keep the characters straight. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Don't waste your time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jgknobler | 12/4/2011

    " I have been a big fan of Scott Turow ever since "Presumed Innocent," but this legal drama about an FBI sting operation to catch corrupt judges is just boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhod | 11/20/2011

    " I felt that Mr Turow included too much minutia for my taste. The story wasn't all that compelling and he took over 500 pages to tell it. There were moments I truly enjoyed, so gave the book 2 1/2 stars. I bought several of his books and am hoping all are not so filled with legal details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita Wood | 10/21/2011

    " Scott Turow does a good job of conveying complex motivations for human relationships. Such a pleasure to read well written internal dialogues of the self aware main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merryll | 9/19/2011

    " Thrilling up to the last page. I didn't want it to finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Logophile | 8/2/2011

    " My audio book club shipped this by mistake, but since I liked a movie that was based on a Turow novel (Presumed Innocent?), I thought I'd give it a listen. It was pleasant enough, if you like legal procedurals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray | 7/4/2011

    " The publishers description says it all for me, e.g., "This the story of a defense attorney caught up in a sting operation targeting crooked judges. The story offers intriguing legal and moral ambiguities and surprising twists, but the strength of the characters is what sets this thriller apart". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee | 1/31/2011

    " Well written, but way too detailed & too long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/2/2011

    " Just re-read this book and was reminded just good Scott Turow is. I was all a-dither when he first started publishing, couldn't wait to get his next book - and somehow over the years, fell away. Re-reading this one brought me back into the fold. On to re-read another of his works. "

    " A lawyer behind the scenes tells the story of Robbie a fraud lawyer for over twenty years who's a snitch for the government and is killed by a golf club over the head. A must read again in 2011 or near future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 3/16/2010
