內容簡介


為什麼四百人遭到屠殺,卻沒有人介入調查?
法律驚悚小說大師、《紐約時報》冠軍暢銷作家史考特.杜羅新作!

面臨中年危機的前律師比爾(Bill Boom),接下海牙國際刑事法院審理的大規模屠殺案件。十多年前,波士尼亞戰爭期間,吉普賽難民營的四百人憑空消失,生還的目擊者卻只有一人……

生還者Ferko Rincic聲稱,武裝男子在夜半十分,將難民營中的吉普賽人趕進山洞中,丟擲手榴彈後引發山崩,活埋了四百人!嫌疑犯有塞爾維亞的武裝部隊或美國軍隊,比爾必須調查目擊者的證詞,找出究竟是誰犯下令人髮指的屠殺罪刑。

案件關係人除了關鍵人物Ferko外,還有急於挽救聲譽的落難美國少將Layton Merriwell、屠殺發生期間在附近進行軍事活動的軍士長Atilla Doby、殘忍的前波士尼亞塞爾維亞族領導者Laza Kajevic、Ferko的吉普賽裔英國律師Esma Czarni。比爾的足跡從荷蘭的國際法庭、波士尼亞的城鎮到華盛頓首府,他必須一一檢視所有案件關係人所言是否屬實,卻發現各方都是既得利益者,而關鍵目擊者Ferko似乎也隱瞞著什麼……


In the bestselling tradition of Presumed Innocent-- the 1987 debut novel that made him "one of the major writers in America" (NPR)--comes what may be Scott Turow's best thriller yet.

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 Gypsy 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, while also maneuvering among the alliances and treacheries of those connected to the case: Morgan Merriwell, a disgraced U.S. Major General; Ferko Rincic, the massacre's sole survivor; and Esma Czarni, an alluring barrister with secrets to protect. A master of the legal thriller, Scott Turow has returned with his most irresistibly confounding and satisfying novel yet.
