Book jacket


"In the bestselling tradition of Presumed innocent--the 1987 debut novel that made him 'one of the major writers in America' (NPR)--comes what may be Scott Turow's best thriller yet ... 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. In order to uncover what happened during the apocalyptic chaos after the Bosnian War, Boom must navigate a host of suspects ranging from Serb paramilitaries to organized crime gangs to the U.S. government, while also maneuvering among the alliances and treacheries of those connected to the case: Morgan Merriwell, a disgraced U.S. Major General; Ferko Rincic, the massacre's sole survivor; and Esma Czarni, an alluring barrister with secrets to protect. A master of the legal thriller, Scott Turow has returned with his most irresistibly confounding and satisfying novel yet"-- Provided by publisher.

O'Shaughnessy, Perri — Scott Turow and Perri O'Shaughnessy have built their careers on masterfully crafted novels in which believably imperfect central characters strip away layers of deceit to reach the truth.

Patterson, Richard North — Richard North Patterson also writes legal thrillers featuring vivid characterizations, complex and thoughtful stories, and moody dramas.
