Scott Turow's linear forebears are not the manufacturers of assembly-line entertainments but the likes of Theodore Dreiser and James Gould Cozzens.
An uncommonly skilled writer, and an uncommonly eloquent one.
Scott Turow is about to condemn another summer's worth of beachgoers to addictive page turning… an irresistible tale and a dark, moral thriller.
Mr. Turow's effects hold one enthralled until the last page.
Turow's novels are not mere entertainments. They transcend their genre. They are literature that will last… the cadences of Turow's prose as well as the substance of his stories are as urban as the sound of a jazz saxophone at 2 a.m.… Turow's Kindle County is acquiring a reality as a convincing moral landscape comparable to that of Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County.
Irresistible… Turow is worthy to be ranked with Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler.
