"The Burden of Proof", published in 1990, is Scott Turow's second novel, somewhat of a sequel to "Presumed Innocent". "The Burden of Proof" follows the story of defense attorney Sandy Stern as he attempts to put his life in order in the midst of seeming dishonesty all around him.

The novel begins with Stern's discovery of a relationship between his wife and another man. As he begins to put the pieces together it becomes a far more complex endeavor than to discover that it was an affair. Apparently, his wife is involved in something that he knows nothing about.

Many of the minor characters in "The Burden of Proof" also appear in Turow's later novels, which are all set in fictional, Midwestern Kindle County.


In 1991, a television mini-series based on the novel and bearing the same title was released starring Héctor Elizondo.
