Set in The Hague and, in particular, in the International Criminal Court and its tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, this fine book follows a young historian who loves the daughter of a Serb defendant, accused of deliberately incinerating a Muslim family. As he listens to the cross-examination of the witnesses, he grows increasingly uncertain about the guilt of would-be killer in the dock.
