The day after Hana's call, the prime minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber - and soon Hana 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 quest 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.

"Action abounds, culminating in courtroom drama." (Booklist)
"Exile is a novel worth reading by anyone who is trying to understand, at least in part, one of the Middle East's political nightmares....Through his artful writing, Patterson presents compelling arguments for both sides while avoiding a preachy tone - a pitfall a lesser writer easily could succumb to." (USA Today)
If you want a history lesson on the middle east crisis, i.e. Palistine and Israel, then this is the book for you. If you want a courtroom drama surrounding a love story. Frankly - I wouldn't bother.
Deeply moving, a thriller from page one with a two sided happy end
