    (42)

    Two American sisters, Christine and Elizabeth Shepherd, are on a silk-buying trip in India for their business in California. After Elizabeth mysteriously disappears, Christine is compelled to challenge the ineffectual U.S. and Indian bureaucracies and venture alone, with various strangers as guides, to find her sister. Disguised in the traditional female garb of some Islamic cultures, Christine continues her search in Afghanistan and Pakistan. She navigates the mysterious tribes of the Pashtuns, has a dangerous encounter with the Taliban, and learns to fear the "Jinn", the devils that dominate the superstitions of the people she must understand in order to survive.

    Story

    The description of this book really caught my interest. The first couple of chapters held my attention, but after Elizabeth disappears the story falls apart. The characters aren't believable. It doesn't seem like the author researched the region or had much knowledge of the workings U.S. intelligence agencies. The story jumps in and out of dream sequences and is difficult to follow at times. Then she tries to introduce some paranormal qualities to the characters, but the introduction of this is not smooth and comes across almost as if she knew the story was dying so she threw it a rope.
    The narration is alright, but the recording has background noises and static and it skips in places. I have been a regular subscriber for 3 years and have listened to almost 200 recordings over that time. I have never had one as poor quality as this.
    Overall, this was a very disappointing purchase.
