A drive-by shooting of an aging white woman at a gang-plagued Kindle County housing project sets in motion Scott Turow's intensely absorbing novel. With its riveting suspense and idelibly drawn characters, The Laws of our Fathers shows why Turow is not only the master of the modern legal thriller but also one of America's most engaging and satisfying novelists.
""Spectacularly worth the wait... Turow's grasp of the revolutionary fervor of the '60s and how it has later calmed into rueful, if still compassionate, acceptance, is masterly.""
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
""The undisputed king of contemporary legal intrigue ... offers a sumptuous triple-decker.""
--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
""Turow's most ambitious novel yet.""
--The New York Times
