What the Critics Say

"When Yussef's son, Ala, is arrested after a decapitated body is found in Ala's Brooklyn apartment, Yussef's search for the real killer leads him from Atlantic Avenue to Coney Island and back to the U.N. Secretariat. In the process, he discovers that he's not quite the cosmopolitan man he thought himself to be, a realization shared by many Arab immigrants in the story. In truth, the residents of Little Palestine are caught between its subterranean mosques and the lure of Manhattan, where forbidden pleasures are ready for the plucking. Yussef remains reliably human and compassionate toward human fallibility, while raging openly at the corruption of his own leaders." (Publishers Weekly)

“One of the most beguiling of current sleuths.” (The Sunday Times, London)

    "Great story Terrible narrator"

    Good mystery with Palestinians in NYC. Unfortunately the narrator sounds like the aliens on Galaxy Quest; high pitched and wooden. It doesn't sound like the character is from another country but another planet. How about a native Arab speaker to read this novel?
