Publisher's Summary

In Kindle County, a woman is killed in an apparent random drive-by shooting. The woman turns out to be the ex-wife of a prominent state senator and an old acquaintance of Judge Sonia Klonsky, on whose desk the case lands. As the pursuit of justice takes bizarre and unusual turns, Judge Klonsky is brought face-to-face with a host of extraordinary personalities and formidable enemies bent on her destruction.

Critic Reviews

"Turow once again proves that there is more substance in a single page of one of his novels than in the entire works of John Grisham or any other author in the legal thriller genre." ( Library Journal)

Disconnected - Story was all over the map.

What disappointed you about The Laws of Our Fathers?

Disconnected - Story was all over the map and very hard to follow, bouncing back and forth from history to current story and the end chapters - I don't even know why I listened to them. You could have cut this book in half and still would have dragged.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Most Likely, back to John Grisham.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Narrators did there best to make a boring story, interesting. The female narrator was the best. Each time the story move away from her, I was waiting for her return.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Laws of Our Fathers?

Pretty much everything after the mistrial. The same music repeated at the end AND the beginning of a chapter - EXTREMELY annoying. Play it once move on....

First time I have returned a book

BORING!
I loved Presumed Innocent, and as a federal prosecutor, I mostly enjoyed the Pelecanos-like dialogue in the beginning and courtroom scenes. But the turgid backstory dragged it down, and I couldn't bring myself to care about any of the characters. By the middle of Chapter 4 I was ready to throw away my headphones.
