What if George W Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq not on assumptions but outright lies? Should—and could—a former US president be held accountable in a court of law for war crimes?

A screenwriter, playwright, and celebrated Emmy Award-winning producer/director who traces his roots back to the Mayflower and an American president, Terry Jastrow explores this unprecedented scenario in his gripping debut novel, "The Trial of Prisoner 043". Backed by rigorous research, this hard-hitting work of fiction presents a powerful case that George W. Bush exploited the horrific attacks of 9/11 to win public support for his war with Iraq—even though he may have known that one had absolutely no connection to the other.  Joining him in conversation is Terry's wife, Academy Award-nominated actress Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction).
