For a writer Scott Turow was not that interesting of a story teller and was vastly over shadowed by Dustin Hoffman for the majority of the event. There was plenty of opportunity for audience members to ask questions, which comes with its own set of rambling issues.

This was a very informal discussion. Seemed like Dustin was not prepared with questions and looked for help from the audience. Very entertaining, somewhat informative, and definitely for fans of either. Lots of names were dropped.

Scott Turow’s new novel, Innocent, is a sequel to his first novel, Presumed Innocent. He is the author of eight bestselling works of fiction, and two nonfiction books that include One L, which describes his experience as a first-year law student. Turow’s books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages, have sold more than twenty-five million copies worldwide, and have been adapted for film and television. He also frequently contributes essays and op-ed pieces to such publications as the New York Times, Washington Post,Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Playboy, and The Atlantic.
More than twenty years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial of Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. When Sabich, now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow—the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.
With his characteristic insight into both the dark truths of the human psyche and the dense intricacies of the criminal justice system, Scott Turow proves once again that some books simply compel us to read late into the night, desperate to know who did it.
