The plot was total nonsense
First and last book I buy from this author
Then I read this book.........and nothing much happened. No real legal thrills. No action. No real mystery.
No one is a superhero in real life, but reading this was kind of like slogging through The Last Jedi and seeing a hero (Luke/Sandy) torn apart and shown in an unflattering manner. The Stern character should have remained a secondary character, I fear. Forced myself to get to the final page, and, like after walking out of a Last Jedi, have no desire to continue this series.

This book is unlike the previous two Scott Turow novels that I have read - Presumed Innocent (a masterful legal thriller) and Ordinary Heroes (an outstanding book about one aspect of World War 2). Burden of Proof is much more of a slow-burn story - developing characters gradually and unfolding the storyline with one small revelation after another, like a jigsaw gradually building the whole picture of human complexity. It is carefully-paced; not too fast as a thriller might be, but with enough speed to maintain interest and empathy.
It is superbly written with original phraseology and a style that is erudite but easy to read. The characters are so well drawn that you enter right into the story and live alongside the unfolding family dramas. The author took time to bring full depth and authenticity to the main character (whom readers will recognise from Presumed Innocent) - a fascinating, quirky character who doesn't aspire to heroism.
If you decide to read this book - stick with it. It may not build up to a thrilling climax to keep you turning pages, but allow yourself to be drawn into the action and enjoy a thoughtful and extended read.
All told, it's a pretty good book and Turow is an accomplished author when it comes to his characters. Unfortunately for me though this one dragged out just a bit too much. Turow is an author you should look at; maybe check out his previous ' Presumed Innocent ' and he's certainly an author i'll return to in the future.
