To millions of readers around the world, Scott Turow is the acknowledged master of the legal thriller. It’s been 40 years since his debut novel, One L, and 30 since Presumed Innocent, and he marks this milestone with the May release of his newest book in 4 years, Testimony (Grand Central Publishing).
The story takes readers to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, in a page-turner that follows an American prosecutor's investigation into an entire refugee camp's mystifying disappearance during the Bosnian War. As Turow’s hero maneuvers among the alliances and treacheries of those connected to the case, questions of responsibility, patriotism, and possible corruption within the U.S. military converge.
Turow is the award-winning author of 10 best-selling works of fiction and 2 nonfiction titles. His books have been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies, and have been adapted into a feature film and 2 television miniseries. Turow discusses his career and the process of researching and writing his latest novel in a conversation with John Donvan, broadcast journalist, author, and host of the Intelligence Squared US debate program.
A copy of Testimony is included in the ticket price and is available for signing.
