• Représailles

    Scott Turow

    À l'âge de cinquante ans, l'ancien procureur Bill Dix Boom quitte brusquement tout ce qui faisait sa
    pour lui  : sa carrière juridique, sa femme et même son pays.
    Engagé par la Cour pénale internationale - une institution chargée de poursuivre les crimes contre l'humanité - il va enquêter sur l'affaire la plus insaisissable de sa carrière. Il y a plus de dix ans, dans le chaos apocalyptique ayant suivi la guerre en Bosnie, tout un camp de réfugiés rom s'est volatilisé. Aujourd'hui, pour la première fois, un témoin s'est présenté  : Ferko Rincic prétend que des hommes armés ont emmené les Tsiganes habitant le camp dans une grotte au milieu de la nuit... puis, au moyen d'une grenade, ont provoqué une avalanche, enterrant vivantes quatre cent personnes. Seul Ferko a survécu.
    La mission de Boom consiste à examiner ces déclarations et à déterminer qui pourrait avoir massacré les Roms. Son enquête le conduit du siège de la Cour pénale internationale aux villes et villages de Bosnie et à des réunions secrètes à Washington. Faire le tri parmi une foule de suspects, allant de paramilitaires serbes à des membres de gangs du crime organisé et au gouvernement américain lui-même, telle est la mission de Bloom. Il y a aussi Ferko  à retrouver, sur le témoignage duquel repose toute l'affaire... et qui en sait peut-être plus long qu'il ne le dit.
    Maître du thriller juridique, Scott Turow est de retour avec son roman le plus diablement déconcertant et le plus gratifiant jusqu'ici.

  • Anglais One L

    Scott Turow

    One L, Scott Turow's journal of his first year at law school introduces and a best-seller when it was first published in 1977, has gone on to become a virtual bible for prospective law students. Not only does it introduce with remarkable clarity the ideas and issues that are the stuff of legal education; it brings alive the anxiety and competiveness--with others and, even more, with oneself--that set the tone in this crucible of character building. Turow's multidimensional delving into his protagonists' psyches and his marvelous gift for suspense prefigure the achievements of his celebrated first novel, Presumed Innocent, one of the best-selling and most talked about books of 1987. Each September, a new crop of students enter Harvard Law School to begin an intense, often grueling, sometimes harrowing year of introduction to the law. Turow's group of One Ls are fresh, bright, ambitious, and more than a little daunting. Even more impressive are the faculty: Perini, the dazzling, combative professor of contracts, who presents himself as the students' antagonist in their struggle to master his subject; Zechman, the reserved professor of torts who seems so indecisive the students fear he cannot teach; and Nicky Morris, a young, appealing man who stressed the humanistic aspects of law. Will the One Ls survive? Will they excel? Will they make the Law Review, the outward and visible sign of success in this ultra-conservative microcosm? With remarkable insight into both his fellows and himself, Turow leads us through the ups and downs, the small triumphs and tragedies of the year, in an absorbing and throught-provoking narrative that teaches the reader not only about law school and the law but about the human beings who make them what they are.

    As a pioneer of the modern legal novel and a criminal lawyer, Scott Turow has been involved with the death penalty for more than a decade, including successfully representing two different men convicted in death-penalty prosecutions. In this vivid account of how his views on the death penalty have evolved, Turow describes his own experiences with capital punishment from his days as an impassioned young prosecutor to his recent service on the Illinois commission which investigated the administration of the death penalty and influenced Governor George Ryan's unprecedented commutation of the sentences of 164 death row inmates on his last day in office.
