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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue Smith | 2/19/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 2/10/2014

    " Not one of his best... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clifford | 2/7/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/25/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Horgan | 1/8/2014

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/7/2014

    " This is a fast flying enthralling book about an attorney whose been caught paying off judges for settlements in his favor. Robbie is a fast thinking, quick witted, attorney who has practiced for over 20 years w/o a license (!) and then unabashedly got trapped in the bribery whirlpool. Very entertaining. My mind was going 100 mph trying to keep up w/all the metaphors and similies, great subtle humor. Very unexpected ending... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Logophile | 12/29/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/25/2013

    " Ron - 4 stars; Nancy - 3 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 12/23/2013

    " Somehow, Turow's books are all similar in flavor, but I like the flavor. Densely layered deceit and discovery of same. The main character (Robbie Feaver) is great. I was a little irritated by the end (literature drama), but when I thought about it, it might be hard to end it any other way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/18/2013

    " Reliably full of good plot twists and interesting character development. The device of having a tangential character as the narrator posed all of the inconveniences you would expect, without much benefit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 11/19/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean Hollandsworth | 11/4/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 10/31/2013

    " ok. this book did not really capture my interest, i waded through - it had a few redeeming moments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holley Cassell | 10/5/2013

    " Scott Turow gets me through my time on the treadmill, and helps remind me that the pursuit of law can be entertaining (even if it's only in fiction). O.K.? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Shields-Szostak | 9/14/2013

    " 1st edition, signed by author "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita Wood | 6/22/2013

    " 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 Fred | 6/6/2013

    " I loved this book. Comes on top of my list of legal thrillers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheila Woofter | 6/4/2013

    " This was okay for the kind of book it is. We listened to it on a road trip. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 5/1/2013

    " almost gave it four stars because the writing and characters are both good, but way too much description for a thriller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhod | 4/12/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 3/16/2013

    " 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 Nancie | 2/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lanz | 1/27/2013

    " i wated too much time reading this book. The story is good but the way it is writen is boring. I forced myself to finish reading this book. And I did finish reading it. An achievement...perhaps. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 12/19/2012

    " Suspense was excellent as always love reading Scott turow "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Staci | 8/22/2012

    " Lots of detail. Sometimes too much making the story difficut to follow and dry. "
