English Summary/英文概要: Late one night, Robert Danziger receives an unexpected call from a childhood friend, Duval Morgan. Duval has spent more than twenty years in an Illinois state penitentiary for the horrific rape and assault of a young nurse. Now he is finally out.

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 Robert’s wife Anna and young daughter Emily, Robert finds himself wondering what his old friend really wants.

When Anna, a lawyer, takes up Duval’s cause, Robert is reluctant to encourage his wife, for reasons he’s not entirely sure of himself. Then just as Anna’s investigations into the rape case start to make progress, Duval disappears.

Part literary thriller, part taut psychological suspense, Without Prejudice is a beautifully written and compulsive story of race, mixed motives and the dangers that can lie in the past.

About the Author/作者介绍: Andrew Rosenheim came to England from America as a Rhodes Scholar in 1977. He has lived near Oxford ever since. In October 1999 he was travelling in from Oxford to his job as MD of Penguin Press when the train he was on collided with another just outside Paddington. Andrew was in the front carriage of the Great Western train (Carriage H). For him it was a life changing experience. He decided to leave his senior position in publishing and write full-time. This wonderfully moving novel is the result.
