Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Presumed Innocent comes Testimony, Scott Turow's most twist-filled thriller to date.

Bill ten Boom has walked out on everything he thought was important to him: his career, his wife, even his country. Invited to become a prosecutor at The Hague's International Criminal Court, it was a chance to start afresh.

But when his first case is to examine the disappearance of 400 Roma refugees - an apparent war crime left unsolved for 10 years - it's clear this new life won't be an easy one….

Whispered rumours have the perpetrators ranging from Serb paramilitaries to the US Army, but there's no hard evidence to hold either accountable and only a single witness to say it happened at all.

To get to the truth, Boom must question the integrity of every person linked to the case - from Layton Merriwell, a disgraced US major general, to flirtatious barrister Esma Czarni - as it soon becomes apparent that every party has a vested interest and no qualms in steering the investigation their way….

EXACTLY THE KIND OF EXCELLENCE YOU EXPECT FROM TUROW

Not the usual Kindle County setting (although there are passing references to Rusty Sabich, Tommy Molto and the boys), but set in Europe for a change, involving the work of the various war crimes courts and agencies.
The cast includes dodgy Roma, Serbs and Bosnians as our hero sets out to investigate the alleged massacre of 400 Roma men, women and children by . . . And here's the rub--it is by no means clear as to who exactly is alleged to have carried out the atrocity, or even if it actually took place in the first place.
There are some really terrific characters, including a laconic Aussie forensic anthropologist and a wheeler dealer American black lesbian by the name of Attila.
My only criticism is that Turow's writing about sex is really terrible'

Compelling story with interesting plot twists

One of Turow's better recent novels. The plot revolves around an investigation at the ICC into an alleged massacre of Roma in Bosnia in 2004. An interesting setting (not, for a change, Kindle County, although the protagonist lawyer is from Kindle) and well constructed plot.
Turow should steer away from sex scenes, I'd probably skip these if I was reading the book!
A couple of gripes about the narration (speaking as a Brit):
- "Caius College Cambridge' is pronounced 'Keys' not 'Kai-us'. Forgivable perhaps for an American to mispronounce, but a British character who would surely know better does so as well...
- The accent used for Esma is atrocious - some kind of imagined posh British accent not actually heard in the UK for 50 years. Made it really hard to believe in the storyline when her dialogue is being narrated.

Offensive

The hero of the story is, like Turow, a lawyer and I guess they share common sensitivities and insensitivity. I listened to most of the book until I reached the point where one of the characters swears, 'Jesus motherf-----g Christ'. That's as far as I got. Obviously Turow, his editor and publishers think this is ok. I don't.

Gripping plot with first class narrator

I love Scott Turow’s books and this is a stand out example of a well plotted and interesting story set against the past Balkans conflict and the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands.

We have an engaging 55 year old attorney from familiar Kindle County with an unusual Dutch family background finding himself in an alien setting. He stumbles, falls, but unravels the truth about an allegation of the massacre of 400 Roma (gypsy) villagers in Bosnia. He also discovers sensual and emotional aspects of his personality which change his life.

The narration is truly excellent and brings the story to vivid life. Definitely a five star listen!
