A NovelPaperback - 2015
Dahlia Barr does not suffer fools--or her own government, with which she is normally at odds. Shrewd, brash, and as tough as she is beautiful, the controversial Israeli attorney specializes in defending Palestinians accused of terrorism. She is also a devoted mother, a soon-to-be-divorced wife, and the lover of a handsome American television correspondent. To Dahlia's astonishment, the Israeli security establishment one day approaches her with a tantalizing proposition: Join us, and become the beleaguered nation's arbiter on when to use the harshest of interrogation methods--what some would call torture. Dahlia is intrigued. She has no intention of permitting torture. Can she change the system from within?
