This is an excellent "read"...one learns so much about the middle east problems in a novel setting that is both informative and exciting at the same time...loved it!

I was very impressed with the authors ability to write whole heartedly from all perspectives. He took a volatile issue and gave each side of it a human face. They cease to be political and become someones life story. It's a love story, an adventure, a legal thriller, mystery, and a journey through Israel and Palestine. I would recommend the Unabridged version of this book - it's long, but a great listen! Through fiction, you learn about what is going on in Israel and Palestine from ALL sides - and you'll find there are many. It makes no judgments, and gives you the information to decide for yourself.
We hear from a Holocaust survivor, a Muslim extremist, and most importantly the two people (a Muslim woman and Jewish man) searching for a moderate answer to this complex situation - personally and politically.

Struggled at first, but as it develops the story becomes intriguing with plenty of interests to keep anybody happy. Political thriller for which Patterson shines.
Found this book really interesting from the point of view that, although fiction, it interspersed facts about the Arab - Israeli conflict. If, like me, you grew up with this always in the background of world events, but without really paying too much attention to the actual details, then this is the book to make you want to check some of the events that actually happened as they are used in the storyline. The book certainly opened my eyes to the issues facing both sides and the almost hopelessness of finding a solution.
