An excellent thriller about a Pakistani-American soldier and his educated, renegade Muslim mother, and their relationship and purpose in life. This is a wonderful character study with most of the volume an analysis, through many conversations and diary-like comments, of the why in their lives, as well as the reason for their actions. The story line involving hostages and their freeing is secondary, but a necessary element to bring the story to a successful conclusion. The thriller is also a study of Islam and it's effect on women who want more than the orthodoxy the faith demands, and a commentary on Islam in general and radical Islam in particular.
