From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent comes a compelling new legal mystery featuring George Mason from Personal Injuries. Originally commissioned and published by The New York Times Magazine, this edition contains additional material.
Life would seem to have gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defense lawyer are long behind him. At fifty-nine, he has sat as a judge on the Court of Appeals in Kindle County for nearly a decade. Yet, when a disturbing rape case is brought before him, the judge begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it. What is troubling George Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive? And what is it about this horrific case of sexual assault, now on trial in his courtroom, that has led him to question his fitness to judge?
In LIMITATIONS, Scott Turow, the master of the legal thriller, returns to Kindle County with a suspenseful entertainment that asks the biggest questions of all. Ingeniously, and with great economy of style, Turow probes the limitations not only of the law but of human understanding itself.

Scott Turow’s approach is thoughtful and cerebral, providing insights into the inner workings of the state appellate court. The title (Limitations) has multiple meanings, beginning with the legal principle that ensures convictions are based on evidence that has not deteriorated with time. The other meanings are more personal in nature, relating to the key characters.

The story line isn’t bad, given the book’s brevity. In some cases, the characters are sketches. But the resolution is suspenseful and gratifying, especially for readers who have followed the legal precedents and arguments for and against the case under consideration.

Not my favourite Scott Turow - but really, has anything been better than Presumed Innocent? Listened to this on CD and had to keep rewinding. This means it either wasn't holding my attention, or that the voices were too monotone. I think this would be a better read than a listen.

This book drifts until tied up at the end. Somehow, I managed to get through it though. 5 of 10 stars
