Book Giveaway: Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow

I'm authorized to give away 2 copies. Rules for entry in the drawing are below. Please read them carefully.

Presumed Innocent
by Scott Turow
(c) 2000
Grand Central Station
Trade Paperback
512 p

Hachette is offering this giveaway in honor of the long awaited sequel, INNOCENT, to be released in May

PRESUMED INNOCENT brings to life our worst nightmare: that of an ordinary citizen facing conviction for the most terrible of crimes. Prosecutor Rusty Sabich is transformed from accuser to accused when he is handed an explosive case--that of the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover.

"He's an unmistakably literary novelist who has made himself a master of the mystery genre."
-San Francisco Chronicle

"Smashingly good...not only a well-crafted, deftly paced story but an intriguing commentary on the corruption of politics, the convolutions of love, and the ambiguities of justice."

"Superbly crafted, wonderfully written...high drama and suspense.... Scenes crackle with the amazing interactions of complex, fascinating characters...absolutely first rate...a great book."
-Library Journal

"Everything you heard is true...genuine, classy, four-star suspense, but also a dark, troubling murder-mystery, rich in character and psychology and pathos.... Several genres at their best-gritty city-government exposé, zesty courtroom strategy, sexy/sincere midlife crisis, Agatha Christie twister-and deserves the vast popular audience it's sure to find as book and film."
-Kirkus Reviews
