Maryville Talks Books – Scott Turow

May 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome bestselling author Scott Turow, who will sign and discuss his new legal thriller, Testimony!

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 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. As questions of responsibility, patriotism, and corruption within the U.S. military converge, Boom’s once quiet life is upended in alarming and exciting ways. Complex and surprising, Testimony confirms why Scott Turow is known as the master of the legal thriller.

“The master of the courtroom drama, Scott Turow’s latest legal thriller goes international and is a page turner not to be missed!” —Daniel Silva, The Black Widow
