Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voice -- those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal -- that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment. A gripping emotional drama with the pace of a thriller, Anita Shreve's Testimony explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.Hide synopsis

I've been a fan of Anita Shreve from the first book I read and I grab each new novel with the same anticipation of being swept away. This novel is no exception. She shocks as she spins her tale that sounds so authentic that parents will hold their collective breath when they have to send their kids off to college. A nice blend of nail biting suspense and pathos. I highly recommend it.
Written with the many voices of the participants and observers, the reader learns a little more each step of the way. The last sentence of the book is a very telling one and the reader is no longer an oberserver but forced to think about how these things can happen and what it may take to unleash what's inside all of us.
Anita Shreve has written an absorbing story which is very relevant in this age of video and sex scandals. At a prestigious private high school, 3 prominent Senior boys and 1 underage freshman girl are caught on tape performing acts that were once considered to be very private. When this tape surfaces, the repercussions are overwhelming to all concerned - headmaster, parents, students and even the town. Anita Shreve, once again,writes of the dark side of human nature and how one moment or lapse of judgement can change the course of lives.
