Personal Injuries. (Roman) [Englisch] [Taschenbuch] - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 9780140292824

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Penguin], Scott Turow has always pushed himself beyond the expectations of readers and critics. In Presumed Innocent (1987), he introduced fictional Kindle County and ushered in the era that spawned such mega-authors as John Grisham, Richard North Patterson and David Baldacci. In Personal Injuries, Turow continues to innovate on legal fiction, but his achievement this time is not gained through clever plot twists (though there are several) or intense legal action (though there is much of that too). The achievement of mastery this time is via exquisitely drawn, Faulknerian characters--attorney Robbie Feaver, agent Evon Miller, US Attorney Stan Sennett and Justice Brendan Tuohey--whose lives become the driving mystery at the core of the book.The novel begins with Robbie Feaver seeking counsel from the narrator, attorney George Mason. For years, Feaver has been bribing several judges in the Common Law Claims Division to win favourable judgements. Now that US Attorney Stan Sennett has uncovered Feaver's dirty little secret, he wants to use Feaver to get at the man he believes to be at the centre of all the legal corruption in the metropolitan area, Brendan Tuohey, Presiding Judge of Common Law Claims and heir apparent to the Chief Justice of Kindle County Superior Court. With Mason as an advisor, Robbie assists Sennett and his team of FBI undercover agents in crafting a massive sting operation that involves an FBI-manufactured lawyer named "James McManis", a cast of fictional clients and "Evon Miller"--a deep cover agent (and former Olympic athlete)--who poses as Robbie's paralegal and paramour.With a skill rarely found in genre fiction, Turow composes his narrative with variations on several recurring themes. The novel ripples with paranoia as the FBI enshrouds the legal community of Kindle County in a web of tapped phones, concealed cameras and wired spies.At the centre of indirection sit Robbie and Evon. The pair dance through an elegant game of erotically-charged hide and seek: Robbie, the practised liar and former actor, and Evon, the agent whose whole life must remain a fiction if she is to survive. At their best, legal thrillers leave readers confronting the core of their values and perceptions of legal and moral rectitude. Personal Injuries is the legal thriller at its very best.Taschenbuch: 416 SeitenVerlag: Penguin Books Ltd (UK) Auflage: New edition (2. November 2000)Sprache: EnglischISBN-10: 0140286977ISBN-13: 978-0140286977Größe und/oder Gewicht: 17,8 x 11,2 x 3,2 cmSynopsisThe Chief Judge of Kindle County and four of his most prominent subordinates have been taking bribes for years. The US Attorney is trying to build up a case against them. But the only way he can hope to convict them is with the help of Robbie Feaver, a thoroughly-compromised lawyer.Über den Autor und weitere MitwirkendeScott Turow, Jahrgang 1949, ist Partner einer großen Anwaltssozietät in Chicago. Seine vielfach preisgekrönten Romane "Aus Mangel an Beweisen", "Die Bürde der Wahrheit", "So wahr mir Gott helfe" und "Das Gesetz der Väter" wurden alle internationale Buch- und Filmerfolge. Turow lebt mit seiner Frau und drei Kindern bei Chicago.Rezensionen:ch habe dieses Buch zwei mal gekauft. Beim ersten mal war es die blinde Begeisterung für "Presumed Innocent". Nach 20 Seiten habe ich damals aus Langeweile aufgegeben.Vor einigen Monaten - auf einem Auslandsaufenthalt in Texas - sah ich es erneut im Regal und versuchte es auf's Neue. Turow ist schließlich ein Profi und unfähig schlechte Geschichten zu schreiben.Es hat sich gelohnt. Robbie Feaver, anfangs skeptisch beurteilt vom Erzähler, habe ich sofort in mein Herz geschlossen: Der Protagonist ist ein solarium-gebräunter Lebemann, etwas übertrieben in seinem Auftreten und Erscheinungsbild, aber ein herzensguter Kerl, der das Leben liebt - und lebt. Und auf einmal mit dem FBI zu tun bekommt. Z.B. personifiziert durch einen ihm charakterlich sehr entgegengesetzten Menschen, einer Agentin, die in der eigenen Selbstkontrolle gefangen ist..Wem Grisham (besser geeignet für Englisch-"Anfänger") etwas zu seicht ist, dem sei dieses im umfassendsten Sinne handwerklich gute Buch an's Herz gelegt. Zu sehr würde mich interessieren, was Sie von Robby, Evon und Stan halten...------------------Der Versand erfolgt meistens am Tag des Geldeinganges.Sofort lieferbar. Nichtraucherwohnung.

Personal Injuries - Paperback

ISBN: 9780140292824

[ED: Paperback], [PU: Penguin], Robbie Feaver is a successful personal injury lawyer, with a burgeoning practice, a way with the ladies and a beautiful wife he loves who is dying of an incurable illness. He also has a secret bank account where he occasionally deposits funds which make their way into the pockets of judges who decide Robbies cases. Robbie is apprehended and, in exchange for leniency, agrees to wear a wire as he continues to try to fix decisions. The FBI agent assigned to supervise him goes by the alias of Evon Miller. She is stocky, lonely, uncomfortable in her skin, and impervious to Robbies charms. And she carries secrets of her own . . . As the law tightens its net, Robbies and Evons stories will converge thrillingly and ultimately tragically . . ., [SC: 1.40], leichte Gebrauchsspuren, privates Angebot, [GW: 239g]

Penguin Books Ltd. 2000. Paperback. Near Fine. Any fan of mysteries and thrillers knows if you read enough of them, you'll eventually develop a knack for predicting the outcome. Read a handful of A gatha Christies and you've nailed down her pattern. Harry Bosch will prevai l over evil, Spenser will find justice, Bernie will be exonerated. It doesn 't diminish the fun of getting there --- I've enjoyed every one and can't w ait for the next release --- but Scott Turow's legal thrillers are clearly on a different plane. They're never predictable; he can pack more surprises into a plot than you would think imaginable., Penguin Books Ltd, 2000
