Testimony by Scott Turow

It takes a talented writer like Scott Turow to tackle the theme of the Bosnian War.

In Testimony, his character, Bill ten Boom, … yes, that name is correct … investigates the murder of 400 members of a Gypsy refugee camp that has been brought before the International Criminal Court at the Hague in the Netherlands.

“Bill ten Boom has walked out on everything he thought was important to him: his career, his wife, Kindle County, even his country. Still, when he is tapped to examine the disappearance of an entire Gypsy refugee camp—unsolved for ten years—he feels drawn to what will become the most elusive case of his career.

While it’s obviously a fictional account, the story also educates us about a war that most people know very little about. Good stuff from Turow … as always!
