by | Read by Stephen Lang

Mystery & Suspense • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Stephen Lang's low-key presentation fits Turow's protagonist, Judge George Mason. The judge has many years of distinguished service behind him and an election ahead of him. He must deal with a rape case, threatening emails, and a cancer-stricken wife, but he remains calm and rational--even when he's assaulted in a parking garage. It's easy to get caught up in the legal minutiae (the judgment document in the rape case comes complete with notes to an assistant) and miss Lang's subtle vocalizations. Mason's phone call to the female victim of a long-ago fraternity assault is made more poignant in audio. This may be less than Turow's best, but Lang does credit to himself and the plot.
