The last time Maureen O’Donnell saw Ann Harris, she was in the Glasgow Women’s Shelter smelling of a long binge on cheap drink. A month later Ann’s mutilated body, stitched into a mattress, is washed up on the banks of the Thames. No-one, except for Maureen and her best mate, Leslie, seems to care about what has happened to her, and Maureen is the only person who thinks Ann’s husband is innocent. But solving Ann’s murder comes as light relief.

Maureen got off and climbed down the stairs, enjoying a bracing breath of cold air in the street. Everyone in Brixton was dressed for a mild spring and Maureen was ready for the height of a Siberian. The sweat from the Underground had dried out, leaving her feeling crusty and damp. She stopped by Woolworths window and took out her A-Z. The lawyer’s office was just beyond the high street and Moe Akitza’s address was at the top of Brixton Hill, within easy walking distance

A complex subject not well understood by most Americans. or the world for that matter. Although the format is fiction ,it deals with many of the real issues facing Israel and Palestine today. How will it get resolved ? Can it be resolved? Amazing and difficult and hard , and sad and challenging for all , and the world .. a heck of a read if you want to get a small , short understanding of the overall issues and how it plays out in the real world, recommend highly !

I'll start by admitting that I am A fan of Mr. Patterson's writing. This novel, in particular, combines an interesting plot, a great deal of research and a wonderful usage of the English language. There is no pretense of being the ultimate work of art, and yet, it provides much information on a topic that many of us know so little about: the enormous problems that bedevil the Middle East which seem to have little chance of being resolved in the near future.

The plot revolves around two main characters who, in their own way, represent the abyss between Palestinians and Israelis. Their personal inner struggle so well defines the greater struggle of two peoples who have suffered a great deal and who feel ownership of the same land. Mr. Patterson does a good job of presenting both sides and as far as I can tell
shows no favoritism.

Interest of the reader is high because of the many twists and turns as well as the factual information (which I found quite educational). I highly recommend this book.

I read this book twice and love it - may even read it a third time! I'd given my wellworn copy to a friend and knew I'd probably want to read it again so ordered this copy. It combines a personal story, current events, history - enjoyed the story line but felt I'd also learned something. I would strongly recommend this to anyone - wish there'd been a sequel.
P.S. I've enjoyed every book that I've read by this author.

This is the first Patterson book I have read and I am thrilled to say the best book I have read in some time. His narrative is so compelling, the reader feels as though he is present in every place the author takes him.

The story is magical and in part reminded me of Exodus. I learned so much more than I already knew about the Holy Land and how much there
is to learn these days about the Palestinian people.

The characters are first rate and I could picture each of them. What a movie this could be!!

I was drawn to the struggle of every single person in this book and when it was over, I felt the pain that each and every one of them was
suffering.

A fabulous book for those of us who loved Irving Wallace's book The Seven Minutes. I recommend this to all serious readers and those who enjoy being transported to foreign places, while learning so much along the way.

Another winner from Mina. Truly a unique contributor to the genre, this is part II of her gritty saga of a woman's personal quest for revenge and for freedom from the demons that hobble her. The books are replete with clear-eyed insight, heart and often humor about the lives of the often voiceless and faceless members of society's underclass. Often she focuses on the ways that her female characters are victimized, but she is a sensitive and compassionate observer of men as well. I am also a fan of Kate Atkinson and Margaret Drabble, two other writers that come to mind for their vividly drawn British settings, delicious, witty writing and interest in psychological nuance. If you are interested in both a great story and a wonderful character study, featuring a heroine who is both very human and also deeply admirable, as well as a vicarious trip to extremely non-touristy parts of the British isles, you will enjoy this book.

The story contains some thought provoking geopolitical and historical elements. I applaud Patterson for his attempt at objectivity, especially given that the central theme is one with a long history of controversy.

The main characters and their back stories are introduced early on, setting the stage for the action and plot. Israel's prime minister is killed by a suicide bomber in San Francisco. The main character David Wolfe sacrifices his political future and the relationship with his fiance' to represent and defend the Palestinian suspect, Hana Arif, who is accused of planning the assassination.

The story takes David on a number of predictable twists and turns as he develops a case to defend Arif in court. There is a history between David and Hana, who were lovers when they both attended law school several years earlier.

It was a long read and for me, not very satisfying.

After I read this book, I felt that I had a much better understanding of the diversity of perspectives among and between Arab and Jewish Israelis and why so many harbor so much intense fear and loathing of one another. I believe it's a balanced presentation and, frankly, one that didn't give me much hope for a decent resolution any time in the forseeable future.
This is also a good mystery story. Once I got into it, I didn't want to stop reading and, when I did, I couldn't wait to get back to it. This book would make a great movie; I wonder if anyone is considering that.
