The Burden of Proof (signed by Scott Turow)


Out of stock

First Trade Edition, First Printing (1990). Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by the author on the title page. Very rare thus. New York Times #1 Bestseller and basis for the hit 1990s miniseries by the same name. Scott Turow's second novel (and third book) following his blockbuster debut as a novelist, Presumed Innocent. Octavo. 515 pp. A wonderful collector's copy!

Set in fictional, midwestern Kindle County, Illinois, (the setting of other Turow novels with common characters), Burden of Proof is something of a sequel to Presumed Innocent. The story tells the tale of defense attorney Sandy Stern in the aftermath of his wife's death (allegedly by suicide) . . . his growing realization that there was much about his marriage that he never truly understood. Stern's bereavement dovetails with his latest case, his defense of a commodities broker, Dixon Hartnell. Hartnell is a complex figure, one that Sandy admires but doesn't trust. Stern soon realizes that defending Dixon will force him to tread a narrow path between zealous advocacy for a client and his ethical responsibilities to the courts.
