The Bone Woman

by Clea Koff - £8.99  Atlantic Books (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843541394 | ISBN 10: 1843541394

A spellbinding account of the journey that transformed Clea Koff from an idealistic student into a seasoned war crimes investigator.
Clea Koff was a young graduate student in 1996 when she was sent to Rwanda by the UN to work with a small team exhuming victims of the genocide. The Bone Woman is a mesmerizing account of her four years of gruelling investigations into these, and other, murderous events - what she found in the Rwandan hills and in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo; how it affected her; and who went to trial based on evidence she collected.

"A hugely important book... It may be that this is the ultimate memoir of the post-Cold War decade."
(Alec Russell, Daily Telegraph)
