Author Dan Fesperman's new novel, The Small Boat of Great Sorrows, resurfaces the protagonist from his first novel — a determined officer in the Sarajevo police force named Vlado Petric. Dragged back into a post-war Bosnia, Petric finds himself caught between dangerous war criminals and corrupt investigators intent on using him as bait. NPR's Linda Wertheimer speaks with Fesperman.
