I think this author is almost as good as Tom Clancy. This book is similar in style, a good thriller: A coordinated effort between a Palestinian police force, a Jewish investigator and a American detective. The mistrust and suspicion that exists on all sides makes their efforts to find a serial killer an extraordinary adventure. As these individuals dig deeper into the crime it becomes apparent that something much more complex is behind the killings! This is intrigue at it's best. The book shed some light on the current peace efforts in the Middle East for me. It is a glimpse into the day to day life there. Excellent reading.
