R.J. Julia Booksellers and New Haven Legal Assistance Association Present SCOTT TUROW!
Please note, the venue location for this event is R.J. Julia Booksellers, 768 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT. This event is SOLD OUT!
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.
Scott Turow is the author of ten bestselling works of fiction, including Identical, Innocent, Presumed Innocent, and The Burden of Proof, and two nonfiction books, including One L, about his experience as a law student. His books have been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and have been adapted into movies and television projects. He has frequently contributed essays and op-ed pieces to publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic.
