Synopsis

From the bestselling 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 four hundred Roma refugees – an apparent war crime left unsolved for ten years – it’s clear this new life won’t be an easy one . . .

Whispered rumours have the perpetrators ranging from Serb paramilitaries to the U.S. 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 . . .

In the media

An engrossing new page-turner . . . Turow has created a compelling, all-consuming drama that maintains the themes that thread through his fiction: the contradictions and conflicts of characters with secrets, often from themselves, and how idealism can be shaken when law, politics, and capitalism mix to distort fairness and justice.
National Book Review
Turow’s lively prose and terrific cast of supporting characters make Testimony one for the beach bag. This is a guy who knows what he’s doing
USA Today
A complex and haunting tale of war crimes that will not only satisfy his courtroom drama devotees but also readers of international thrillers
