Turow has written some great courtroom thrillers including Presumed Innocent. In this, his latest novel, he is trying something different with limited success. This books deals with a fictional mass murder of Gypsies in Bosnia and the investigation of the potential genocide by an American attorney working for the International Criminal Court. Along the way, there is also a backstory about the recently divorced lawyer's attempts at finding romance. The book is way too long, unlike Turow's past books, there is virtually no court-room suspense, and the ending is totally predictable and boring. I'm giving it two stars, which is being generous. Read his prior books, but I wouldn't waste time on this one!
