Generals steal they are heroes. When Gypsies steal they’re
thieves." –Testimony, Scott Turow
Bill ten Boom went through a midlife crisis, of sorts. He
divorced his wife, left the US legal system and entered international
law. He’s still good friends with his ex-wife, who remarried,
and speaks to his sons every week. Boom is sought out and
asked to take an international case that goes back ten years.
It involves missing Romina refugees in Bosnia. Boom eventually
ends up in International Criminal Court questioning the only
witness, Ferko. During the investigation Boom gets physical
with Ferko’s attractive attorney, Esma, and he becomes
good friends with military personnel, Atilla Doby. She’s
a foul-mouthed Sergeant Major with a big personality. Boom
seems distracted by the conditions in Bosnia, those he thinks
he can trust, and those he’s sure he can’t. Boom
is determined to find out who killed refugee gypsies. Was
it the Americans or the Bosnians?
thrillers can be fascinating, and international plots are
the perfect escape. Turow gives readers/listeners a complex
storyline with diverse characters; some are likeable and some
are not. During the investigation we are reminded of the Bosnia
war and the chaos that ensued afterward. Don’t let it
bog you down or let it interfere with the court scene and
the discovery. Pay attention to this complicated whodunit
and see if your personal prediction is right.
