Robert has recently returned to his native city of Chicago to make a fresh start - but Duval is a voice from the past, and from a childhood Robert would rather forget., Robert reluctantly agrees to meet him, and is astonished to find he is proclaiming his innocence. But as Duval gradually starts to spend more time with the Danziger family, befriending Robertís wife Anna and young daughter Sophie, Robert's trust is pushed to the limit and he finds himself wondering what his old friend really wants.
When Anna, a lawyer, takes up Duvalís cause, Robert is reluctant to encourage her, for reasons heís not entirely sure of himself. Then just as Annaís investigations into the rape case start to make progress, Duval disappears.
As thought-provoking as it is compelling, Without Prejudice is a stunningly written tale about the dangerous places trust can lead you to.
