I finished "Innocent" by Scott Turow today.

Innocent is the second Scott Turow book about Rusty Sabich. In the first, he's accused of being a married prosecutor that killed his mistress. Having survived that ordeal, he somehow manages to miraculously rebuild his life, stay married to his wife and become the regional Chief Justice for the Court of Appeals. Not bad for an accused murderer.

The only problem is the Prosecuting Atorney has managed to survive in tact too, and is still gunning for Sabich (his former boss is gone, being the only one who was punished for the screw ups in the first book). So when Sabich behaves weirdly after his wife dies, Molto gets after him.

Daft premiss, daft book. So far beyond what's likely to have happened in real life, that I found myself thinking "Come on, really?" If you can put the innate daftness of the book behind you though, you might like it.
