Marc Royce works for the State Department on special assignments, most of them rather routine, until two CIA operatives go missing in Iraq--kidnapped by Taliban forces bent on generating chaos in the region. Two others also drop out of sight--a high-placed Iraqi civilian and an American woman providing humanitarian aid. Are the disappearances linked? Rumors circulate in a whirl of misinformation. Marc must unravel the truth in a covert operation requiring utmost secrecy--from both the Americans and the insurgents. But even more secret than the undercover operation is the underground dialogue taking place between sworn enemies. Will the ultimate Reconciler between ancient enemies, current foes, and fanatical religious factions be heard?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Description is so vivid you can smell the food and choke on the desert sand. With many complex Iraqi characters, the story is broad, eschewing melodramatic focus on a few American characters pitted against Iraqi enemies…Bunn’s fans will leap for this precise and intricate tale of cross-cultural friendship and loyalty in the heart of the Red Zone.” Publishers Weekly
“Keeps the listener riveted…Paul Boehmer narrates with a subtlety that must be experienced. His soft delivery at first seems at odds with a novel of war, but one soon realizes it’s appropriate as the main character is a Christian in a Muslim nation—that is, a person who must tread lightly…Author and narrator work together to create a production that is a joy to hear—and that makes the listener stop and think about what’s going on in the world.” AudioFile
“ Bunn’s exciting, action-packed thriller features a strong sense of place in its depictions of the people and politics of the Middle East. It is sure to please his fans and win him new ones.” Library Journal
“This book delves into crucial issues with a sensitivity that left me literally stunned…Bunn tells a story that grips the reader and refuses to let go.” Keith Hazard, deputy directed (ret.), CIA
