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.

Deep, RIVETING END. NEEDS to be a movie.

It started out a bit slow, I actually got confused for awhile. But this man CAN WRITE AN ENDING! I don't usually listen AGAIN. But I just might this one.

William Hope is an astonishing narrator. Really great production.

Intriguing but........

I got through the book just to see how it would end. So much hate on both sides, but slightly tilted. That might be how things really are, I pray not. The narrator did a wonderful job with just the right emotion all through the book.

It's a story of love and hate and passion and a lot more. It could happen in today's world and that's really scary. The only thing I thought was missing was more interaction with the truly guilty one.

I would not listen to this again, so I'm going to return it.

Excellent read

This was one of the best books I have read for a long time. The storyline was gripping and I could not put it down. Hope there is a follow on to this story. I will be first to buy it.
