I found the relationship with his mentor's daughter, whom he first met when she was seven years old and he was a high-school senior, to be kind of creepy. Actually there was a lot of the plot that was kind of creepy.

Great book, I loved it! Keep me guessing to the end. Did have some language and graphic details…

Fantastic historical novel with a thriller component. I learned more about the dynamics in the middle east than I ever learned in school. Well-written and fast paced.
