#18 — Presumed Innocent

Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow

Rating: 3/5

  • It was clearly written in the 1980s — the victim in the who-dun-it was a powerful woman who moved up in her career because she was slutty, and the Japanese coroner was a shifty eyed nerdy loser
  • The first third of the book was boring; it only got interesting when the narrator was accused of murder. The reveal at the end was drawn out and so it was satisfying when it all came together in the end
