"This is at once a thriller, a story of middle-aged angst, an exposition of international law and an exploration of an intensely serious and very nasty episode in recent history...admirable and important."―New York Times Book Review
"The real pleasure of the new novel lies not so much in solving the mystery of the massacre as in watching Turow knock down assumption after assumption made by Boom--and the reader. In fact, I can't think of another novel in which so many givens end up being exposed as either honest mistakes or outright lies. TESTIMONY is a tour de force of collapsing perceptions."―Washington Post
"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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Black Widow
"TESTIMONY is Scott Turow's most ambitious and complex work-which takes us from the gritty familiarity of his beloved Kindle County into a mysterious world of international intrigue. It's the best kind of thriller, which stimulates the mind as well as thrilling the heart."―Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author of American Heiress
"A compelling story, told with Turow's usual ease, authority and understated humor."―Chicago Tribune
"Turow's lively prose and terrific cast of supporting characters make TESTIMONY one for the beach bag...This is a guy who knows what he's doing: Turow has been crafting intricate, best-selling legal thrillers dating back to his blockbuster wifedunit, Presumed Innocent (30 years ago!)."―USA Today
"Scott Turow writes with zest and authority about the inner workings of the law...TESTIMONY unfolds in highly descriptive prose and is sprinkled with colorful characters."―Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Turow applies the same storytelling magic to the ICC that has drawn scores of readers into his Kindle County courtrooms, weaving fascinating details about the challenges of prosecuting war crimes into a suspenseful story of redemption and the complexities of justice."―Booklist
"Follows twists and turns, shifting alliances, and a near-fatal confrontation... [TESTIMONY] is exciting and consistent with Turow's prior novels."―The Missourian
"A complex and haunting tale of war crimes that will not only satisfy his courtroom drama devotees but also readers of international thrillers."―Library Journal

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.
