Summary

Summary

"You open the book and start reading. Quicker than you can say Uris you are caught up at once in the unfolding conflict. . . . It's a professional job all the way.. . dramatic, impassioned."-- The New York Times Book Review

In Queen's Bench Courtroom Number Seven, famous author Abraham Cady stands trial. In his book The Holocaust-- born of the terrible revelation that the Jadwiga Concentration camp was the site of his family's extermination--Cady shook the consciousness of the human race. He also named eminent surgeon Sir Adam Kelno as one of Jadwiga's most sadistic inmate/doctors. Kelno has denied this and brought furious charges. Now unfolds Leon Uris' riveting courtroom drama--one of the great fictional trials of the century.

"A fine suspense story, an excellent courtroom story, written with genuine passion. You won't put it down once you've picked it up. It is the author of Exodus at his best."-- Newsday


Author Notes

Writer Leon Uris was born in Baltimore on August 3, 1924. He dropped out of school to join the Marines during World War II, but later returned to attend Baltimore City College.

His first novel, Battle Cry (1953), was based on his time as a marine. He followed it with a series of New York Times bestsellers, including The Angry Hills, Exodus, Topaz, and Trinity. QB VII was adapted into a TV mini-series starring Ben Gazzara and Anthony Hopkins. Uris has also written non-fiction (including Ireland: A Terrible Beauty and Jerusalem: Song of Songs) and screenplays (Battle Cry and Gunfight at the O. K. Corral). He has won the John F. Kennedy Memorial Award from the Irish-American Society and the Scopus Award from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
