A Picador Paperback Original
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent comes a compelling new legal mystery featuring George Mason from Personal Injuries. Originally commissioned and published by The New York Times Magazine, this edition contains additional material.
Life would seem to have gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defense lawyer are long behind him. At fifty-nine, he has sat as a judge on the Court of Appeals in Kindle County for nearly a decade. Yet, when a disturbing rape case is brought before him, the judge begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it. What is troubling George Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive? And what is it about this horrific case of sexual assault, now on trial in his courtroom, that has led him to question his fitness to judge?
In Limitations, Scott Turow, the master of the legal thriller, returns to Kindle County with a page-turning entertainment that asks the biggest questions of all. Ingeniously, and with great economy of style, Turow probes the limitations not only of the law but of human understanding itself.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That reveal is hardly developed at all during the book, and doesn't come across as a legitimate twist so much as an almost completely disconnected surprise. A bit like a deus ex machina conclusion. And frankly, although admittedly perhaps somewhat shallow myself, I found myself scratching my head over the villain's motive. The author attempts to explain it through the protagonist's eyes, but the absence of previous groundwork makes the explanation murky and unsatisfying in my view. It's as though Mr. Turow started out with an incomplete storyboard, and changed his mind at the last minute.
Still, a pretty good read, where style compensates for diminished substance.

and depth. Strange book - the courtroom drama came and went in the first couple of pages, and the rest was about the judge agonizing about his verdict, given his own similar unsavory episode in his fraternity days. A superimposed thriller is presented by the threatening e-mails to the judge. This takes a major part of the book to solve, and the solution turns it into a shaggy dog story. The writing seems forced, ponderous and pedantic, without the usual Turow flair. Somewhere in the middle of the book I realized that I was reading it the second time. It was obviously forgettable.
