Description: A prominent religious figure nearing retirement, Bishop Watson is hardly the kind of man one expects to commit murder. But when a chance sighting of the Japanese officer who tortured him during his imprisonment during World War II instantly transports the Bishop back to that harrowing time, he finds himself overwhelmed by an uncontrollable desire for vengeance. Adding to the Bishop's distress is the equally elderly Japanese man's insistence that the he is not the war criminal the Bishop accuses him of being. Imprisoned in his hotel room by the overwrought cleric, the Japanese man struggles to save himself as Watson revisits his long-buried memories of pain and terror.

Engaging and emotionally poignant, A "Special Prisoner" delves into the complicated issue of war guilt and forgiveness, starkly portrayed in the characters of an officer from a country that refuses to admit any wrongdoing and a clergyman who is committed to a belief that to forgive is divine. This is new and controversial territory for Lehrer and he treats it with passion and respect, but also in the engaging, often light-hearted style that is his trademark. This fascinating story of what's fair in war -- and what's fair afterwards -- is an ambitious new novel from the veteran author and newscaster.
