“Since Presumed Innocent rocked the publishing world, Scott Turow has cemented his status as a writer with few peers in any genre. Now the master is back with a brilliant courtroom chess match that shows us the human quotient in all its rot and virtue. The Last Trial is a first-class legal thriller.” ― David Baldacci
THE LAST TRIAL by Scott Turow is the courtroom drama his fans have been waiting for: the culmination of two incredible lives inone explosive case, as Turow’s beloved character, Sandy Stern, returns to the KindleCountry courtroom to defend one of his oldest friends from ruinous charges.
In THE LAST TRIAL, Sandy Stern is a celebrated criminal defense lawyer nearing the end of his career. But when his lifelong friend, Dr. Kiril Pafko, a Nobel Prize winner and world- renowned cancer researcher, is faced with charges of insider trading, fraud, and murderand his life’s work is put into jeopardy, Stern decides to take on one last trial – one that could impact both of their legacies.
As the trial progresses, Stern begins to question everything he thought he knew about his friend. Despite Pafko’s many failings, is he innocent of the charges laid against him? And will Stern 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.
A lawyer himself, Turow is known for masterful legal thrillers that bring the breadth and depth of his professional knowledge to life on the page. THE LAST TRIAL is as authentic as it gets, complete with a page-turning mystery andcourtroom scenes ripped straight from reality. But it’s Scott’s research into the medical field – more specifically cancer research, the drug development and approval process, and the evolution of medical science – that adds another layer to this astute thriller. And at its core, this is a book about the undeniable truths of human nature and what it means to have a life well-lived.
