Thriller Political | Mystery Woman Sleuth
Hamas has taken power in Palestine, and the Israeli
government is rounding up threats. When Palestinian
policewoman Rania Bakara finds herself thrown in prison,
though she has never been part of Hamas, her friend Chloe
flies in from San Francisco to get her out. Chloe begs an
Israeli policeman named Benny for help―and Benny offers
Rania a way out: investigate the death of a young man in
a village near her own. The young man’s neighbors believe
the Israeli army killed him; Benny believes his death
might not have been so honorable.
Initially, Rania refuses; she has no interest in helping
the Israelis. But she is released anyway, and returns
home to find herself without a job and suspected of being
a traitor. Searching for redemption, she launches an
investigation into the young man’s death that draws her
into a Palestinian gay scene she never knew existed.
With Chloe and her Palestinian Australian lover as
guides, Rania explores a Jerusalem gay bar, meets with a
lesbian support group, and plunges deep into the victim’s
world, forcing her to question her beliefs about love,
justice, and cultural identity.
