By Adam Liptak Oct. But not every trip to Kindle County is equally rewarding. Turow has many gifts. He might consider being a little more parsimonious in doling them out. Yes, he wants to stretch, and who can blame him? He long ago proved that he is a fine stylist whose sly, grave sentences are merciless tools for probing a criminal justice system unequal to the task of sorting out responsibility for human frailty.

So he has set himself new challenges, touching on areas of the law where he is less sure-footed and working with a classical template apparently meant to give his tale literary weight.

The stew gets awfully rich. The novel takes its inspiration from the myth of Castor and Pollux, the twin brothers born to Leda after she was raped by Zeus. There are frequent references to twins in mythology, Shakespeare and the Bible, in what seems an attempt to give more heft to a perfectly good thriller, though one that takes a little time getting airborne. It starts with an italicized flashback to a lawn party on Labor Day weekend in , and the passage is as dense as a standardized reading-comprehension test.

Turow introduces us to many of the main characters, most of whom bear the names of Greek gods or variations on them. The patriarch hosting the party is Zeus Kronon; his daughter is Dita, short for Aphrodite. Among the guests are her boyfriend, Cass Gianis; his identical twin, Paul; and their mother, Lidia.

But the suit is implausible. Politicians in the United States almost never sue for slander or libel, partly because American law puts public figures to the nearly insurmountable burden of proving not only that the statements they object to are false but also that they were made with knowledge of that falsity or with serious doubts about their truth.

Filing a defamation suit also subjects plaintiffs to intrusive questioning and investigation. No sensible politician, and certainly not one harboring secrets, would risk such a thing. He is particularly good at showing how judges use minor rulings to nudge a case to their preferred outcome.

But there was no point in daring when the only outcome was bad. One is Evon Miller, a former F. Brodie is beset by age and regrets, and he speaks in cadences reminiscent of Elmore Leonard.

These are followed by yards of expository dialogue that clears up most but not quite all of the confusion that preceded it. Soliloquies are uttered by characters whose sudden urge to confess is not wholly explained. It has treats and shortcomings, like a trip to a city with a lot of different neighborhoods.
