Written in English

Sir Adam Kelno has spent his whole life covering up his past. After his political beliefs land him in Jadwiga, Poland’s worst concentration camp, Kelno earns privileges with the Nazis by performing inhumane operations on Jewish prisoners. Now, after rebuilding his name in a British colony and being knighted by the British monarchy, Kelno finally fells safe returning to London.
But his past catches up with him when the novelist Abraham Cady publishes a book naming Kelno one of the most sadistic doctors at Jadwiga. Anxious to quell the rumors, Kelno charges Cady with slenderizing his name. As the court proceeding draw out, Cady must fight to avenge his past as Kelno fights to save his future.
An instant bestseller and the basis for the first miniseries in history, winning 6 Primetime Emmys, QB VII explores human nature under the most dire of circumstances.
From the Publisher:
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.
"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.
