Stewart Dubinsky plunges into the mystery of his family's secret history when he discovers his deceased father's wartime letters to his former fiancâee, revealing his court-martial and imprisonment during World World II.
Legal thriller writer Scott Turow brings back a recurring character but switches genres for this complex and haunting wartime tale. Stewart Dubinsky's father was a reticent man who never discussed his service in World War II. Cleaning out his recently deceased father's belongings, Stewart discovers a bundle of letters written by his father to his then-fiancée, a woman not Stewart's mother. With the help of the letters, army records, and a secret memoir, Stewart reconstructs a hitherto unknown and extremely troubling part of his father's life, when David Dubin was a JAG lawyer pursuing a suspected double agent, a mission that plunges him into an affair with the agent's probable lover and eventually leads to his court-martial and imprisonment.
