The Bosnia massacre is the subject of a new thriller by author Scott Turow. It is an opportune thing to write about because the conflict has been going on for over 20 years, but no one is sure about who did what to whom. Turow’s book really does well at recreating the uncertainty that the people in the conflict faced. The scenes shift a lot between the conflict itself and other things going on around it.
- “Testimony” is the latest tome, written by renowned mystery writer, Scott Turow.
- When various sectors of the nation of Yugoslavia declared their Independence in the nineties, the act preceded violent ethnic-based slaughtering, which resulted in a minimum of 100,000 dead.
- “Testimony” centers on happenings at the International Criminal Tribunal of the Netherlands, which deals with the aftermath of the violence to this day.
“The Bosnian war and its aftermath is an excellent period in which to set a legal thriller because, more than 20 years after the end of that messy conflict, it is still unclear exactly who was responsible for doing what to whom.”
