Reversible Errors (Hardcover)
by Scott Turow (Author) "THE CLIENT, like most clients, said he was innocent ..." 
 
A Reviewer:
Reversible Errors has a grand sweep, much like the great Russian novels of the 19th Century such as Crime and Punishment. The book is filled with passion, conflicts, and hopes . . . while grimness grows as the days until an execution dwindle. I found Reversible Errors to be the most eloquent anti-death penalty book I have read. It's even more moving than the evidence that many people on Death Row were innocent when DNA tests were first applied to the evidence. Our justice system is supposed to set free 20 guilty people rather than convict one innocent one. In death penalty cases, we probably aren't doing so well. Innocent people have been executed in many cases. Once that happens, there's little good we can do about it. As we judge, so shall we be judged.

The criminal justice system isn't as neat and objective as television, movies and novels usually make it out to be. But naturally, most people who write about the system do so as nonparticipants. Mr. Turow writes from the vantage point of being both a top-flight lawyer, but also someone who works on death penalty appeals. It's clear that he writes from first-hand experience as to the poor defense work in many of these cases. I once helped defend a client who was accused of attempted murder. I came away from that experience feeling much like this book made me feel.

In Reversible Errors, Arthur Raven, an earnest corporate attorney, is appointed by the court to handle a death penalty appeal. Like most, he views this assignment as undesirable and likely to end in frustration. His client has been convicted based on his own confession to a gruesome triple murder. Arthur's a man who hasn't found love, and assumes that he never will. His commitment to the law does show his love of fulfilling his sense of duty. The central irony of this story is that he will have to choose between that love of duty and his chance for happiness with convicted felon, the former judge in the case, Gillian Sullivan. What would you choose in that situation?

The brilliantly plotted story shows how "neat" pictures of "who did what to whom" usually aren't so neat in reality. Arthur's hopes begin to rise, however, when a witness comes forward to exonerate his client, Rommy "Squirrel" Gandolph, a penny-ante fence whose intelligence and education make it hard for him to help with his own defense. The prosecutor, Muriel Wynn, has her own complex agenda that keeps her from making it easy for Arthur, though. In part, she's blinded by affection for Larry Starczek whose commitment to her leaves all defendants in jeopardy. They're an unattractive pair to read about, but undoing the harm they have created makes for riveting reading. It's not the usual "all prosecutors and cops" are bad story. Instead, the story shows that judges, prosecutors, cops and defense attorneys are flawed, vulnerable people like us all who can be easily drawn away from the messy reality of the truth . . . like why the defendant ended up with soiled pants.

If you don't like your stories realistic and graphic, you may not enjoy this book. Although the central theme is about our endless search for love and acceptance, Reversible Errors is certainly no classic love story. In fact, the romantic aspects are the least well written parts of the book.

After you finish this book, think about times when you've judged a situation incorrectly . . . and lived to regret what you've said and done. How could you have handled the situations better? How can you reverse the error now?



Please note :  although we try very hard to make sure the book descriptions are as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, if you are looking for something specific it is always best to send us a question before you buy.

Don't forget we post 6 days per week, so you can have your book fast.
