The two will discuss his latest book "Innocent," a modern day murder-lawyer story. Describes Live Talk: "With his characteristic insight into both the dark truths of the human psyche and the dense intricacies of the criminal justice system, Scott Turow proves once again that some books simply compel us to read late into the night, desperate to know who did it."
