Editorial reviews (3 reviews)

This is superlative crime fiction mixed with unforced cultural analysis that bursts right out of genre constrictions.

There's something here for everyone: a thrilling mystery; exposure to a country typically shrouded under a veil from the Western gaze; not one but two conflicted love stories. But it's the characters who drive this remarkable book, products of their foreign culture, but deeply familiar in their humanity.

Accomplished prose, an intricate mystery and insider Saudi scoop make for an unusual and winning combination.
