Together Jay and his translator, the beautiful Alijawho is searching for a missing brother and is herself a victim of the warrace to find this prophet of jihad.
Each danger-fraught foray across the lines and each interview whether with a rebel commander, Serb sniper, or American spook tasked to evaluate and take out this new threatbrings Jay and Alija closer to each other and to the devastating truth about the conflict in the Middle East. Pitchperfect and keenly observed, Fleishman’s novel delivers bracing suspense in a tale of substance reminiscent of Graham Greene and Ernest Hemingway.
