Publisher's Summary

An ambitious young lawyer takes on his biggest case: the televised murder trial of a woman he still loves...

David Wolfe is an ambitious former homicide prosecutor who is planning to run for Congress. A political dinner for the Israeli Prime Minister is hosted by his current girlfriend, Carole Shorr, a liberal supporter of both the Palestinian and Israeli causes. But when David receives a call from Hana Ashawi, a Palestinian woman who was David's classmate at Harvard Law School, he is rattled.

Hana was more than a peer - she was his lover. When, furthermore, the Israeli Prime Minister is assassinated, apparently by Hana's partner, David finds himself thrown into a situation with enormous global, political and emotional implications.

    Story
    "I loved this book with minor exceptions. i"

    I found this book utterly fascinating. it made me stop and think about all that I know about the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, all I think I know, and more. I found myself looking at it from both sides with a more open mind, although, not it did not change my core beliefs. I found myself slipping out to care to salvage a few extra moments of listening time whenever I could. Although it seemed to drag on in spots it carried itself very well.

    Story
    "Sadly Predictable Story Sharply Defined Characters"

    The story is as old as the campfire. Romeo and Juliet in the person of Hanna and David, a Palestinian and a Jew each carrying his or her own ethnic and religious baggage. Mr. Patterson pulls at us to understand the plight of the Palestinians while tipping his cap to the two thousand years of pogroms directed at the Jews. In the end the characters are extraordinarily sharply drawn and completely realized. Without giving away too much, the denouement is never really in doubt and sadly predictable. I enjoyed the characterizations in the first half of the book, though David was a bit of cliché. You will see the end coming from the very publisher's blurb. Still the writing was excellent. I am on the fence whether I would recommend it.
