Verse in Arabic is a captivating tale of murder, innocence, and intrigue. It is set in Spain during a complex and turbulent period in that country’s history. The writing is crisp and visual; the characters are compelling and developed caringly and with precision. The author’s careful unraveling of information and details—a methodical crescendo, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph—is masterful storytelling. Once you start reading, you will find it a challenge to put Verse in Arabic down.

ABOUT THIS BOOK
Can a patient's silence kill the doctor?
A respected physician in Cordoba, Spain, receives a mysterious phone call—a request to attend to the ailing daughter of a wealthy but secretive family in Madrid. What seems to be a routine house call quickly turns into a disturbing labyrinth of intrigue and mystery, and a fight for the girl’s life. The outcome of that battle will impact the doctor—and the journalist interviewing him—in ways neither imagined.
