Assigned to investigate the unsolved disappearance of an entire Gypsy refugee camp during the Bosnian War, Bill ten Boom, a disillusioned American prosecutor, navigates a host of suspects while uncovering disturbing alliances and betrayals. 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 Turows 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 orderto 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 massacres sole survivor; and Esma Czarni, an alluring barrister with secrets to protect.

Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author and one of the major writers in America (NPR), returns with a page-turning legal thriller about an American prosecutors investigation of a refugee camps mystifying disappearance.At the age of fifty, former prosecutor Bill ten Boom has walked out on everything he thought was important to him: his law career, his wife, Kindle County, even his country. Still, when he is tapped by the International Criminal Court--an organization charged with prosecuting crimes against humanity--he feels drawn to what will become the most elusive case of his career. Over ten years ago, in the apocalyptic chaos following the Bosnian war, an entire Roma refugee camp vanished. Now for the first time, a witness has stepped forward: Ferko Rincic claims that armed men marched the camps Gypsy residents to a cave in the middle of the night--and then with a hand grenade set off an avalanche, burying 400 people alive. Only Ferko survived. Booms task is to examine Ferkos claims and determinine who might have massacred the Roma. His investigation takes him from the International Criminal Courts base in Holland to the cities and villages of Bosnia and secret meetings in Washington, DC, as Boom sorts through a host of suspects, ranging from Serb paramilitaries, to organized crime gangs, to the US government itself, while also maneuvering among the alliances and treacheries of those connected to the case: Layton Merriwell, a disgraced US major general desperate to salvage his reputation; Sergeant Major Atilla Doby,a vital cog in American military operations near the camp at the time of the Romas disappearance; Laza Kajevic, the brutal former leader of the Bosnian Serbs; Esma Czarni, Ferkos alluring barrister; and of course, Ferko himself, on whose testimony the entire case rests-and who may know more than hes telling. A master of the legal thriller, Scott Turow has returned with his most irresistibly confounding and satisfying novel yet.
