Life would seem to have gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defence lawyer ( Personal Injuries ) are long behind him. At fifty-nine, 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, the judge begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it. What is troubling George Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening emails he has started to receive? And what is it about this horrific case of sexual assault, now on trial in his courtroom, that has led him to question his fitness to judge? In Limitations , Scott Turow, the master of the legal thriller, returns to Kindle County with a page-turning entertainment that asks the biggest questions of all. Ingeniously, and with great economy of style, Turow probes the limitations not only of the law, but of human understanding itself.

The judge's wife took his confession much too calmly.

The subject of girls being raped in college is unnerving and especially by multiple guys. I have a daughter in college right now and this book highlights the legal and social aspects of such a horrible crime. I couldn't put this book down.

In enjoyed the moral conflict of sitting in judgement over someone who has committed a crime similar to what was done in his youth. But those were different times and different mores. This really held my attention and was well paced with interesting sub-plot following a chief gangster managing his gang from prison.

I really enjoyed this book. Scott Turow is more than a mystery writer. He is a novelist who writes mysteries, i.e., he tries to develop character and do more than just tell a good story. He certainly succeeded here.
