David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif, the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school, he begins a completely unexpected journey.

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.

    " Israel vs. Palestine...what more can you say? "

    " This books begins with the assassination of the peace-seeking prime minister of Israel while speaking in San Francisco. The Palestinian woman accused of orchestrating the suicide bombing calls her former Jewish lover of 13 years before to defend her in the trial that follows. Thus the stage is set for a trial with all sorts of intrigue and twists and turns. However, Richard Patterson uses this event as the springboard to explore the many-faceted struggle between the Palestinians and Israelis over the land they both occupy. While at points it seems overly obvious that Patterson is going to great lengths to explore all sides of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, he does a great job of letting all sides tell their story from their perspective. I was left with a greater appreciation of the issues involved and the difficulty of resolving the conflicts in that war-torn land. So Patterson succeeds in telling a great story, while disabusing us from looking for quick and easy solutions to the centuries-old battles over who has "ownership" and rights in that little strip of land known as the "holy land". Given the conflict that Patterson describes for us, that title is indeed a misnomer. "
