"Pleading Guilty", published in 1993, is Scott Turow's third novel, and like the previous two it is set in fictional Kindle County.

The novel begins with a middle-aged lawyer, basically waiting to retire, being assigned by his firm to track down another attorney who has embezzled millions from the firm and disappeared.

Many of the minor characters in "Pleading Guilty" also appear in Turow's other novels, which are all set in fictional, Midwestern Kindle County.
