An engrossing and richly panoramic novel from a major new writer, based on a true story.

In 1948, the body of an American journalist is found floating in the bay off Thessaloniki. A small-time Greek journalist is tried and convicted for the murder . . . but when he's released twelve years later, he claims his confession was the result of torture.

Flash forward to contemporary Greece, where a rebellious young high school student is given an assignment for a school project: find the truth. And as he begrudgingly takes it on, he begins to make a startling series of gripping discoveries - about history, love, and even his own family's involvement.

Based on the real story of famed CBS reporter George Polk - journalism’s prestigious Polk Awards were named after him - The Scapegoat is a sweeping saga that brings together the Greece of the post-World War II era with the Greece of today, a country facing dangerous times once again.
