Rusty Sabich is a prosecuting lawyer in Chicago who enters a nightmare world when Carolyn, a beautiful attorney with whom he has been having an affair, is found raped and strangled.
He stands accused of the crime. This 'insider' book by a Chicago lawyer was one of the great novels of the 1980s, selling more than nine million copies, and was made into a famous film starring Harrison Ford.
It's a supremely suspenseful and compelling courtroom drama about ambition, weakness, hypocrisy and American justice.
