This riveting story provides a rich portrait of life behind the headlines of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
- Ayelet Waldman, author of Love and Treasure

The mix of murder and politics makes for fascinating reading, made even richer by the revealing glimpse of life in the occupied territories. -- Booklist

A stunning mystery novel by a talented new writer. Anyone picking up the book will be drawn in by Rania and Chloe, a dynamic, realistic, pair of women sleuths who bridge cultural divide and distrust to investigate a death on the Israeli-Palestinian border...[A] compassionate and suspenseful tale.
- Sujata Massey, author of The Sleeping Dictionary

Kate Raphael gives us smart, complex women who challenge the boundaries of states and expand the boundaries of mysteries. This is a great read!
- Elana Dykewomon, author of Beyond the Pale
