There was an excessive amount of useless background filler & despite a fair amount of different characters to follow, the author annoyingly flips back & forth between aliases of several characters!

A very plausible storyline that will hold attention for the full span of this book.
As with his other novels about the Middle East and it's varied cultures, Mr Ignatius has few equals. He has a great understanding of the nature of the people that he writes about.

Nice read, I liked better his older novel 'Angels of Innocense', but this one happens inside Iran, places are well researched and real.
