Reversible Errors demonstrates why Scott Turow is one of the most popular writers of legal thrillers. In his best novel since Presumed Innocent, Turow writes about attorney Arthur Raven, who is assigned to handle the last-minute appeal of death row inmate Rommy Gandolph. J. R. Horne’s reading is superb. He provides subtle, yet critical, personality to each of Turow’s well-defined characters. His portrayal of Erno Erdai, who offers a deathbed confession to the triple murders, highlights the novel, particularly when Erdai describes how and why the killings occurred. But this book is more than a story about whether Gandolph or Erdai committed the murders. It is a marvelous examination of how factors other than guilt and innocence impact the law, even life-and-death cases. Horne’s subtle changes in inflection add the perfect complement to each character’s emotions. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
