LimitationsPaperback - 2006
Life has gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defence lawyer are long behind him. At 59, he has sat as a judge on the Court of Appeals in Kindle County for nearly a decade. Yet, when a disturbing rape case is brought before him, Judge Mason begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it.
What is troubling Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive? Or is there something in the case, centering around an episode of sexual violence committed four years earlier, that has led him to question his fitness to judge?
In Limitations, #1 New York Times bestselling author Scott Turow returns to Kindle County with a gripping story that asks the biggest questions of all. Playfully and with great economy of style, Turow probes the limitations not only of the law but of human understanding itself.
