Robbie Feaver (pronounced Favor) is a successful personal injury lawyer, with a burgeoning practice, a way with the ladies, and a beautiful wife he loves - who is dying of an irreversible illness. He also has a secret bank account where he occasionally deposits funds which make their way into the pockets of the judges who decide Robbie's cases.

Robbie is apprehended, and in exchange for leniency, agrees to wear a wire tap as he continues to try to fix decisions. The FBI agent assigned to supervise him goes by the alias of Evon Miller. She is stocky, lonely, uncomfortable in her skin, and impervious to Robbie's charms. And she carries secrets of her own. As the law tightens its net, Robbie's and Evon's stories converge thrillingly and, ultimately, tragically.

Turow shows us new sides to Kindle County, the world of greed and human failing he has made immortal in Presumed Innocent, The Burden of Proof, Pleading Guilty, and The Laws of Our Fathers. He also shows us enduring love and quiet, enexpected heroism. Personal Injuries is Turow's most reverberant, most moving novel - a powerful drama of individuals trying to escape their character.

    " Not as good as his other books. Too much in-depth descriptions of characters' internal struggles, too many characters, several plots, wondered when it would end. "

    " Not one of his best... "

    " 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. "

    " I liked this one better than Pleading Guilty, the other Turow novel I've read dealing with a financial crime rather than a murder. The character depth in this book was amazing. I found myself hating Robbie Feaver and then, by the end of the book, forgiving him for all his indiscretions. Evon Miller was the other character I really felt attached to by the end of the book. I thought Turow did an incredible job filling out her character, which left me feeling like I didn't really know her until near the end of the book. Miller's story was really what drove the book for me. I found myself turning pages more to find out what was going to be revealed about her next rather than what was happening with the larger plot. Turow did a great job of developing reader empathy for these character's and their struggles of self-discovery. I believe even Robbie, as deceitful and self-centered as he was, didn't know everything about himself before he met Evon Miller. And Evon Miller discovered herself along the way too, which I suppose was to be expected since the jacket summary pretty much gave us that much. The way their stories worked to complement each other and blend together was real literary genius in my opinion. I only rate this one four stars because there were still some places I found myself trudging through. "
