Summary

David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif-the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school-he begins a completely unexpected journey. The day after Hana's call, the Prime Minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber; soon, Hana herself is accused of being the mastermind behind the murder. Now David must make an agonizing decision: Will he, a Jew, represent Hana-who may well be guilty-or will he turn away a woman he can never forget? Ultimately David's guest takes him to Israel and the West Bank, where, in a series of harrowing encounters, he learns that appearances are not at all what they seem. Culminating in a tense and startling trial with international ramifications, Exile is that rare audiobook that both entertains and enlightens. At once an intricate tale of betrayal and deception, a moving love story, and a fascinating journey into the lethal politics of the Middle East, this is Richard North Patterson at his most brilliant and engrossing.

  • The plot was interesting and original. The author was very knowledgeable about the middle east, but I, being fairly ignorant about that geographical area, was lost. First, all the Arabic names confused me. Then all the place names. Then all the political titles and history. I like to learn about new ideas and I did actually learn a great deal, but I find myself not caring enough about the plot to continue with the second half of the book. It was all just too heavy and detailed for a reader who has not had enough exposure to the complicated and bitter religious ideology of the Palestinians and Jews in that area. I could see how another reader would devour this book as it is a masterpiece.
