The Scott Turow phenomenon Personal Injuries (6 hours) is Turow's fifth book and, like its best-selling predecessors, it's a legal thriller set in Kindle County. It is also, like its predecessors, a fine novel that looks closely at the intricacies of love and loyalty, ambition and morals, and goes beyond the bounds of genre. Turow's protagonist, Robbie Feaver, involved up to his eyeballs in judicial corruption, is a liar and a crier, but not without qualities that could redeem his more than flawed life. Joe Mantegna reads.
