Wow, color me surprised to learn on Twitter (no less) that Scott Turow is set to release the sequel to his blockbuster hit novel, Presumed Innocent (1987). I saw the movie, never read the book about a man accused of killing his mistress. The movie was good! And that ending! What a twist, huh? I love these kinds of novels. Will the sequel surpass the first book? What plot twists could Turow have up his sleeve this time?
Anyway, the title of the sequel is Innocent, from Grand Central Publishing (May 2010). It’s hardcover with (I presume) the ebook coming out on the same day. Glanced at the Kindle price and yes, it’s a whopping $18.79 with a list price of $27.99. If you’re like me, you’ll just catch the movie version whenever it becomes available (ha ha). For Scott Turow fans, here’s an article that came out last year (Scott Turow to Switch Publishers For Sequel) that talks more about the author and his new book. Writing this up made me think of how much I miss Raul Julia. I manged to snag the synopsis from B&N website that really doesn’t say a heck of a whole lot:
The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark bestseller Presumed Innocent, INNOCENT continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, twenty years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty’s wife.
Guess what I’m watching tonight?
