“This international mystery beautifully depicts the sights, smells, and sounds of both the historical and modern-day Gaza Strip. The conflicts of the UN, Israelis, and Palestinians are descriptive, bold, and humane -- a truly wonderful read by a literary storyteller from the Mideast!”
— Kathleen Dixon, Islandtime Books & More, Washington Island, WI
