Publisher's Summary

Rommy "Squirrel" Gandolph is a Yellow Man, an inmate on death row for a 1991 triple murder in Kindle County. His slow progress toward certain execution is nearing completion when Arthur Raven, a corporate lawyer who is Rommy's reluctant court-appointed representative, receives word that another inmate may have new evidence that will exonerate Gandolph.Arthur's opponent in the case is Muriel Wynn, Kindle County's formidable chief deputy prosecuting attorney, who is considering a run for her boss' job. Muriel and Larry Starczek, the original detective on the case, don't want to see Rommy escape a fate they long ago determined he deserved. Further complicating the situation is the fact that Gillian Sullivan, the judge who originally found Rommy guilty, is only recently out of prison herself, having served time for taking bribes.Scott Turow's compelling, multidimensional characters take the listener into Kindle County's parallel yet intersecting worlds of police and small-time crooks, airline executives and sophisticated scammers and lawyers of all stripes. No other writer offers such a profound understanding of what is at stake when the state holds the power to end a man's life.

An engaging story

I've liked many of Turow's books in the past, and so this was the book I chose as my indoctrination into the wonderful world of audio books and I'm not upset at all about my choice. The story is engrossing from the start and maintains that quality throughout. As this was my first audio book, I could see where the narrator is key to enjoying the book. In this case, he(J.R. Horne)was spot on. His accents made the characters' dialogue a breeze to follow and his pacing was quite excellent. It was like being at a play. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great job, Scott, and thanks for the good read, Mr. Horne.

Worth reading

The author, Scott Turow, put together a book that was more than just a "Who done it". He exposed the conflicts in the legal system by allowing us to view the personalities of the players in the system as real people. The unraveling of the hidden truths throughout the book kept me looking forward to the next chapter.
The beginning of the book was difficult to follow because the story jumped from the present to the past. Perhaps it was the reader, but in the beginning it was difficult to tell what time frame the story was in. As the story progressed however the problem of time was resolved.
I thouroughly enjoyed the reading but felt a little let down with the ending.
The process of getting to the end of the book made the reading worthwile. The personalitites of the players were very well developed in the book.
I rate this 4 stars and would recommend this audio as an enjoyable listening experience.
