The Great Night Circle: March 2020 - Snow Moon (Full Moon #3)

For all of my posts in this series, go here.

13 Full Moons, including 2 Super Moons, and 2 Full Moons in one month, the second full moon being the Rare Halloween Blue Moon: That’s what we get to see in the night sky this leap year which starts a new decade. A treat to all those stargazers! Here continues my amateur photography of this gorgeous orb of light.

The third Full Moon of this year is the Worm Moon and incidentally the first Super Moon of the year as well. Worm Moon asks us to separate grain from chaff in our lives to bring everything to order.

Book Critique - Innocent (Kindle County #8)

For review of all books in the series, go here.

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: A well-written crime thriller with hints of psychology of human mind and the devious direction it takes when played upon by emotions and moral values. However, it felt repetitive with its prequel. Yet a good pick for anyone interested in court room trials.

Innocent is the eighth book in the Kindle County series, a legal thriller by Scott Turow, published in December of 2005. It forms a sequel to the very first book, Presumed Innocent, in the series, although was written 7 books later. The plot follows Rozat "Rusty" Sabich involved in another murder case twenty years after the first one he was indicted and acquitted for. 

When I bought Presumed Innocent at the library sale, I found Innocent also right beside it. However, I assumed that this was the immediate sequel. Until I started reading the books, I didn’t know that this was the written seven books after the first one was written. Anyways, here's my review of this book.

Rozat "Rusty" Sabich is now Chief Judge, at the State Court of Appeals for the Third Appellate District. And when his wife Barbara dies unexpectedly, his nemesis, Tommy Molto now acting Prosecuting Attorney (P.A.), finds cause in the death and indicts him for suspicious death. Rusty is put through the same rigor that he went through 20 years ago when a co-prosecutor was killed and he was arrested for it. Only this time, he is being tried for the murder of his wife.
