I listened to this book because of a glowing review by Stephen King in "Entertainment Weekly" and because the plot summary intrigued me as the story centered around a stripper in Florida and a traumatic event surrounding her 3-yr-old daughter. The plot moved quickly though I'd say it was more character-driven rather than a thriller. It exposed the inner dark secrets of the hearts of the main characters. It was kind of like seeing a car crash through the eyes of six different drivers as they came into a major collision. I worried a little that people who had little knowledge of Islam might get the wrong idea about Muslims from this, but clearly the character I'm referring to was a fanatic and not a representative of main-stream Muslim belief. This was an OK listen, though I wouldn't give it an enthusiastic recommendation.
