With all the unrest in the Middle East, I found myself drawn to this book. As I turned the pages I wondered how much of this could actually be true? It had enough truth sound to it to keep me turning the pages. I found myself holding my breath wondering what I would find on the next page and how the story would truly unfold. At times I did find it hard to follow as it jumped from character to charcter.
I was pleasantly surprised because I thought it would be 100% political but it had a great plot with enough mystery and intrigue to keep it fast-paced.
