Narrator John Bedford Lloyd previously portrayed attorney Alejandro "Sandy" Stern in Scott Turow's BURDEN OF PROOF. This time around, the brilliant defense lawyer is about to defend his last client. Lloyd adds a weariness and a touch of confusion to Stern's voice as he struggles to defend the 75-year old doctor who saved his life with a controversial cancer drug. Turow, known for weaving trial strategy and courtroom drama into realistic legal mysteries, is in excellent form, and Lloyd adds gravitas to supporting characters like Dr. Innis McVie, the flirtatious septuagenarian; Marta, Stern's daughter and ultra-competent trial partner; and Pinky, Stern's pierced granddaughter. Filled with bittersweet reflections on aging and family, this audiobook still manages to pull the rug out from the listener once again. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
