Book Review Tuesday: Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow

Who doesn’t love a good legal thriller? Author Scott Turow’s first novel, Presumed Innocent, is definitely worth reading, and makes me want to read more of his works. Below is my review:

A fast-paced, suspenseful, and engaging legal thriller, Presumed Innocent hooks you from the start and doesn’t let go until the final pages have been read. I was mesmerized by author Scott Turow’s ability to turn what could have been rote courtroom procedure into page-turning, edge-of-your-chair drama that kept me wanting to know how things would conclude.

I knew of Turow from watching the Apple TV+ series, Defending Jacob, adapted from his novel of the same title. 

I just discovered that Presumed Innocent was also adapted into a film in 1990 starring Harrison Ford. While I will be checking out the film adaptation next, I highly recommend reading the novel first. It is an excellent and gripping read.
