Publisher's Summary

Guarding the Secrets recounts the terror-stricken life and murder of 16-year-old Tina Isa, who was condemned by her other family members for becoming Americanized, before her father, an accused Palestinian terrorist, murdered her in November 1989.  

The killing was recorded by accident due to the FBI having bugged the house in an attempt to prove the father's ties to terrorism. 

The events leading up to the murder are expertly told by author Ellen Harris, including Tina's older sisters urging their father to kill their younger sister.

What insanity and real tragedy!

What insanity! And what a tragedy! This is an old crime, and actually, an old book. An update with more current information would have been appreciated, but this is a true crime case worth the time to read.

I found keeping track of all the people involved in this case a bit challenging, especially in the beginning, but in the end, it came together for me.

Lee Ann Howlett performs competently. Of course, being true crime, there's not much to challenge her performance.
