As expected Mr. Turow is a pleasant writer. The mystery had the potential to be quite good, but when you spend the last 20 pages of so explaining it to the reader, you have seriously missed the mark.
like his new direction and want the old Turow back again. Theoretically, the
main theme here revolves around an atrocity in Boznia where 400 people were
murdered by being buried alive in a coal mine landslide and the American army
is thought to be at least partially responsible. Our hero is a prosecutor for the
Interenational Criminal Court at the Hague. In the background is the character,
Esma Czarni, lawyer for one of the accusers and our hero's lover. I thought of
her as similar to Marlene Dietrich playing a Gypsy in the movie "Golden Earrings".
Though the quality of his writibng is excellent, as it always is, Turow devotes so
much space to Gypsy culture and the erotic themes that it seems the focus is
backwards - it's the love story, not the crime. I was not shocked by the subject
matter, I was bored. The crime and trial passages were much more interesting.
1 - turmoil, tribalism, intelligence and military bureaucracy and other tangled and intractable problems,
2 - and personal foibles, weaknesses plus personal strengths and weaknesses and a male middle age crisis.
I don't know if there was a much better way to handle this extensive undertaking.
For the first, five stars for excellent and thorough research and excellent storytelling for a valuable exposition of all of the problems involved in the area - on a level with Daniel Silva I House of Spies, for example.
As to the second, three and a half stores because of the need to explain personal motivations, failings and strengths necessary to provide a human side to what might have been a dry recitation of a sketch of a fictional rendering the researched events.
