Fantastic historical novel with a thriller component. I learned more about the dynamics in the middle east than I ever learned in school. Well-written and fast paced.

(2005) Not very good. Only finished about 1/2 of this. Could not get into a story about a convicted murderer that supposedly did a very vile crime and the long, boring process of trying to get him off of death row.
