Scott Turow - Presumed Innocent

Read more
Scott Turow talks about his first thriller, Presumed Innocent, with James Naughtie and a group of readers. The novel was first published in Britain in 1987 and Scott's books have since sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. The novel was seen as groundbreaking as it spawned a whole generation of legal thrillers.

Presumed Innocent is the story of lawyer Rusty Sabich who's investigating the brutal murder of a beautiful and ambitious female colleague, Carolyn Polhemus. In the first twist of many in the novel, Rusty, who is married, was once Carolyn's lover, a fact he tries to conceal from his boss, the Prosecuting Attorney. In a further twist Rusty finds himself on trial for the murder, and the evidence against him mounts. Rusty is defended by Sandy Stern, who goes on to appear in Scott Turow's subsequent books, including his new novel, The Last Trial.

Fascism. With apologies to Upton Sinclair and his semi-satirical 1935 political novel published during the heyday of fascism in Europe, IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE…yes it can! And that’s just one of the topics we explore this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table is NY Times bestselling author and legal genius, Scott Turow, and former White House correspondent, and Time and Newsweek veteran, Matthew Cooper.

We begin with Halli and Matt and their weekly take on all things politics. There are a lot of questions to ask. Has Donald Trump succeeded in turning the United States into a fascist state? Will the cold-blooded killers of African-American, George Floyd suffer the consequences for their actions? Has history finally caught up with Donald Trump, Trump now the wrong president for the times? Can Joe Biden continue his momentum into the fall election? Remember the Coronavirus pandemic? We do. And will General Mattis have the final word over Trump? Tune in.

television projects. He has frequently contributed essays and op-ed pieces to publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic. And just so you know, his writing only gets better and better as he proves in his latest thriller, THE LAST TRIAL, the best courtroom drama he’s written to date. But first, Scott Turow, was and is a great lawyer. The Harvard graduate served from 1978 to 1986 as an Assistant United States Attorney in Chicago, acting as lead prosecutor in several high-visibility federal trials. He has much to say about the pharmaceutical industry, key to his latest book. And he isn’t shy to talk about Donald Trump, Fascism, Attorney General William Barr, and the trial of former NSA advisor, Michael Flynn. Do not miss this interview!

About the Last Trial:  At 85, Alejandro "Sandy" Stern, a brilliant defense lawyer with his health failing but spirit intact, is on the brink of retirement. But when his old friend Dr. Kiril Pafko, a former Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, is faced with charges of insider trading, fraud, and murder, his entire life's work is put in jeopardy, and Stern decides to take on one last trial.  In a case that will be the defining coda to both men's accomplished lives, Stern probes beneath the surface of his friend's dazzling veneer as a distinguished cancer researcher. As the trial progresses, he will question everything he thought he knew about his friend. Despite Pafko's many failings, is he innocent of the terrible charges laid against him? How far will Stern go to save his friend, and  will he ever know the truth?  Stern's duty to defend his client and his belief in the power of the judicial system both face a final, terrible test in the courtroom, where the evidence and reality are sometimes worlds apart.
