(Turow, Scott) 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. 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. His latest novel, Testimony (Grand Central Publishing), is a page-turning legal thriller about an American prosecutor’s investigation of a refugee camp’s mystifying disappearance. When former prosecutor Bill ten Boom is tapped by the International Criminal Court, he feels drawn to what will become the most elusive case of his career. In the apocalyptic chaos following the Bosnian war, an entire Roma refugee camp vanished. Now for the first time, a witness has stepped forward who claims that armed men marched the camp’s residents to a cave in the middle of the night–and then with a hand grenade set off an avalanche, burying 400 people alive. Boom’s task is to examine these claims and determine who might have massacred the Roma.
