Cindy Seip

Scott Turow is the author of eleven bestselling works of fiction, including Identical, InnocentPresumed Innocent, and The Burden of Proof, and two nonfiction books, including One L, about his experience as a law student. He has also 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. From 1978 to 1986, Turow was an Assistant United States Attorney in Chicago, serving as lead prosecutor in several high-profile federal trials investigating corruption in the Illinois judiciary. He currently is a partner in an international law firm. In Testimony (Grand Central Publishing) Turow follows former prosecutor Bill ten Boom as he peels back the many layers in the mystery of a massacre in post-war Bosnia, and no assumption is safe — or entirely correct. In Turow’s The Last Trial (Grand Central Publishing) defense lawyer Sandy Stern, 85, takes one last case. The criminal defendant is an old friend, a former Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, now charged with insider trading, fraud and murder —and the case will question everything Stern thought he knew about his friend.
