BOOK REVIEW: EXILE
David Wolfe could not ask for much more. He is a very successful San Francisco lawyer who will soon be married. He also plans to enter the political field as a candidate for Congress.
Something happened one day that changed David's life. He received a phone call from Hana Arif, a Palestinian woman with whom he had a secret affair in law school. She informed David that she was now married and had a child. She was now visiting San Francisco because she decided it was time for her child, Munira, to see the United States. David informed Hana that he would be getting married in seven months.
The next day, a suicide bomber who is visiting San Francisco assassinates the prime minister of Israel. Guess who turns out to be the prime suspect? It is Hana! Was she really responsible for the murder? Was she just visiting San Francisco as she states and had no part of this crime?
Now David is faced with a dilemma. Does he represent Hana or turn away from someone in his past that he just cannot forget.
If David decides to take on this challenging case, it means digging into the lives of Hana and her militant Palestinian husband. This could be one of the most important decisions David makes in his life. It could also end his political career.
This novel is an exciting thriller that will grab the reader's attention from the very first page. The courtroom drama does not let the reader down. Some courtroom scenes can get boring but this does not happen in this book. Although the ending is predictable, this does not take away from the excitement of the story. This book also includes a strong cast of characters that you will remember long after reading this novel. This is a compelling read so be sure to add this one to your reading list.
