My all-time favorite mystery novel by accomplished author & attorney, Scott Turow. Narrated in the first person, this is a skilfully nuanced tale. Readers may come to different interpretations of what really happened. Even the title is a double entendre. Take a pass on the film version - it flattens the story into a conventional tale that is only one of several possible readings.
Directed by Alan J. Pakula. With Harrison Ford, Raul Julia, Greta Scacchi, Brian Dennehy. When the female deputy prosecutor R.K. Sabich had an affair with is murdered, he is chosen to lead the investigation. However, when he digs too deeply, he finds himself framed for the murder.
