"Abou Ben Adhem, a retired goat herdsman and onetime taxi driver in America, is living amid the political turmoil of the Middle East and family relationships that are far from placid, too in this novel set in Gaza in early 2001, as the Palestinian uprising gains intensity." -- Jacket.
I read this book from start to finish in one day. I stayed up late to finish this page-turner. This is a stand-alone novel and in my opinion the best novel I've read by Rosenberg. The novel revolves around a single mother that becomes a police officer in order to provide for her children. She is placed on the lightly-manned night shift with a rogue cop and his clique of officers.
A good read that is rated a solid 4 on both PaperBackSwap and GoodReads.
