Welcome back to Kindle County … where skies are generally gray, the truth is seldom simple, and the partners of a top-drawer corporate law firm are counting on one world-weary attorney to save them from front-page scandal and financial ruin.
When Gage & Griswell’s star litigator suddenly disappears—along with $5.6 million of its most important client’s money—the assignment of locating both goes to Mack Malloy, a fiftyish ex-cop, almost ex-drunk and partner-on-the-wane at G&G. Mack’s search takes him into the treacherous inner sanctum of his firm and through the shadowy heart of the city itself, on a path that soon runs him up against his longtime nemesis—the odious Pigeyes—as he plucks the threads of a dangerous web of corruption, deceit and murder.
An edge-of-the-chair journey into an ominous and enthralling world, Pleading Guilty is at once a brilliantly constructed puzzle, a relentlessly entertaining character study, and as suspenseful a story as any listener could want—a masterpiece of midwestern menace that could come only from Scott Turow.
