The Trial of Prisoner 043: A Novel The Trial of Prisoner 043: A Novel

by Terry Jastrow

Book Reviews

“With echoes of Nuremberg, Jastrow’s masterpiece of realistic fiction will inspire some, anger others, and provoke water cooler conversation across our divided nation. Whatever your position on the legitimacy of the war in Iraq, this is a book you’re going to want to read.”
—Michael Scharf, Dean, Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and coauthor of Enemy of the State

“Terry Jastrow’s new novel is a riveting review of a controversial and sad period in American political affairs—the war in Iraq. Jastrow’s method of competing arguments reminds the reader of Socrates; the book is an engrossing drama well worth contemplating. Bravo!”
—Tom Dine, foreign policy expert on European and Middle East affairs and President, Radio Free Europe

“If hindsight is 20/20, what is foresight? A question posed existentially in a fascinating new book, "The Trial of Prisoner 043", written by Terry Jastrow. While the prosecution has the advantage of hindsight, the defense is restricted to foresight, and the reader must reconcile the two. The question becomes, what would you have done given the same circumstances? It’s a seductive question that makes the book a must-read. There is also a shock on the last page.”
—Bob Dowling, former Publisher and Editor in Chief, Hollywood Reporter

“Carefully researched and brilliantly argued, this is compelling, infuriating, and cathartic.”
—Lou Aronica, New York Times best-selling author

“Terry Jastrow’s brilliant, biting novel is a must-read for anyone who cares about international peace, war crimes past and future, and how justice can be delivered in unexpected ways. If you think you know how this story ends, start reading now!”
—Sarah Lovett, coauthor (with Valerie Plame) of New York Times bestseller Blowback

“Terry Jastrow’s terrific new novel, "The Trial of Prisoner 043", poses many questions that need to be ask and debated. I won’t stop thinking about it for weeks, maybe months. It is the must read book of the summer.”
—Catherine Bell, star of JAG, Army Wives, and Hallmark’s The Good Witch

“Terry Jastrow’s "The Trial of Prisoner 043" is a masterful blend of fact and fiction. A powerful story that entertains and edifies. Can the president of the United States ultimately do whatever he wants? Was Bush’s maverick decision to go to war with Iraq a foreshadowing of things to come? A perfect book for these unsettling times.”
—Terri Hanauer, film and theatrical director/screenwriter
