Daniel, a Canadian journalist, has been living in Bosnia for ten years, long after most correspondents have moved on to other global hotspots. On a visit to Paris he meets Lili, a Serbian-Albanian interpreter at The Hague, entrusted with hearing and telling the stories of victims and perpetrators of brutality. Their lives intersect at the trial of a man accused of war crimes, interviews with whom have formed the bedrock of Daniel's career.

Lili and Daniel meet by accident. She is a professional interpreter and he is a journalist. She is working on the war trials resulting from the Serbian genocide; he is a journalist who has met and reported on that war and the man now accused of participating in that genocide. They each must come to terms with the rules governing her job and the scope of his knowledge. Helwig manages the tension very well. Her language is beautiful. We are steadily drawn in to the relationship, and I found myself dreading their next conversations for fear that lines might be crossed. This was a page-turner for me.
