A very compelling read. Lots of historical context re the palestinian Israel conflict.
In law school in the US a jew and a palestinian have an affair and 18 years later she is back in the US and accused of murdering the Prime Minister of Israel on American soil. He becomes her lawyer but is never sure of her innocence but in the process travels to Israel to unravel her connection to the crime and at the same time wants to understand the conflicts in the region. There is lots of history to learn.

Patterson weaves a story of passion and intrigue while carefully unravelling the complex issue of the middle east to make it understandable. This is the best of his novels.

This was the first of Patterson's books I read. Couldn't put it down. Amazing story. Have read several other of Patterson's books since. Liked them all, but he does keep using the same beginning plot over and over. The stories are all interesting. Like the international settings - especially in Eclipse.
