Presumed Innocent is a well crafted blend of mystery and legal thriller. I met Scott Turow when he came to visit my college to promote "Presumed Innocent", which I thought was a great book at the time. I haven't read it in almost 20 years (Christ, has it been that long since I was in college?), but I remember some of the details in his writing that made him stand out from all the other best-selling thriller writers out there, most notably John Grisham.
Sabich!" calls Ernestine, Judge Lyttle's docket clerk, into the crowded courtroom. She is a stern-looking black woman, six feet tall. Sunup on the morning of battle; Christians against lions back in Rome. There are four full rows of press, five sketch artists at the head.
