Testimony by Scott Turow

From Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author and "one of the major writers in America" (NPR), a page-turning legal thriller about an American prosecutor's investigation of a refugee camp's mystifying disappearance.

At the age of fifty, Bill ten Boom has walked out on everything he once thought was important: Kindle County, his law career, even his wife. Still, when he is tapped by the International Criminal Court—an organization that prosecutes crimes against humanity—he is compelled by a mystifying case. Over ten years ago, in the chaos following the Bosnian war, a Roma refugee camp vanished overnight. Now a witness has finally stepped forward: Ferko Rincic claims that armed men marched the camp's 400 residents to a cave and then set off an avalanche with a hand grenade, burying them alive. Only Ferko survived.

Boom's task is to investigate Ferko's claims, taking him from the Court's base in Holland, to Bosnian villages, to secret meetings in Washington, DC, as he sorts through the alliances and treacheries of those involved: a disgraced US major general, members of the US military, the brutal former leader of the Bosnian Serbs, Ferko's seductive barrister, and of course, Ferko himself, on whose testimony the entire case rests—and who may know more than he's telling.

As with every Turow book, I put aside sleep, chores and even meals, just to keep reading.

I eagerly awaited this book by Turow. It's a departure from presumed innocent but a welcome surprise. I'm not sure why certain reviewer found the writing flat but it isn't. I liked the locale as well and its a nice change for once to bring on some serious issues about some forgotten people. The world is not a nice place anymore and sometimes books remind us of just that while taking us on the ride.

That's the sign of a very good book when my husband talks about nothing else! I found it difficult to follow in the earlier chapters. He has repeatedly assured me that if I stick with it, I will enjoy it. Unfortunately it's not a PRESUMED INNOCENT. It opens our eyes to what lengths people will go to for power. Everyone will be able to relate to this if following the news about our administration

The story line was not extraordinary. There was a lot of repetition on the main plot. I felt the author was forcing the story to get to 350 pages. But there were riveting occasions.

A great read

Hard to stay with this latest "intrigue" from Scott Turow. Seems more about a social sexual liaison than an actual Testimony. Or maybe that was the intent. Not one of my fav's from Scott Turow.

Another well written story by Turrow. Interesting turn of events, colorful characters, and, thankfully, little legal jargon.

International court and a mass genocide set the stage for this tense legal thriller. 400 Roma refugees disappear in the area of Barupra, Bosnia that was under US control in 2004. Now over a decade later a witness is stepping forward with claims of mass genocide. Ferko Ricnic -- the remaining sole survivor -- attests that masked soldiers gathered all of the gypsy residents into a cave before setting off an avalanche via grenade, burying the people alive. The International Criminal Court at the Hague, in charge of prosecuting mass atrocities, wants an American lawyer to prosecute in which Bill ten Boom seems the perfect fit. Early fifties, newly divorced and recently retired from his law career -- Boom sees this case as an opportunity of a lifetime. Boom's tasked with investigating Ferko's claims across different continents but the only thing certain is nothing is quite as it seems. Following the real life case of 400 missing Roma, Turow has expertly researched those events to bring forth this compelling legal drama. Amassed with multiple entertaining characters, beautifully descriptive locations, shocking deception and a surprise double twist, TESTIMONY will appeal to longtime Turow fans. ~ Kris Miller, certified TopShelf Reviewer.
