We know our members love Patterson—and we know why. He’s one of smartest thriller writers around. His stories are so well researched (he’s actually a lawyer himself) that they take on a chilling sense of realness that makes for vigorous page turning. His latest is a compelling tale centering on a Jewish trial attorney in San Francisco whose career and personal life get turned on their ear after his old love reappears in his life.
David Wolfe’s life is at a peak: his law career is prospering, he’s engaged to be married, and he’s being primed for a run for Congress. But when Hana Arif, a Palestinian woman with whom he had a secret affair at law school, calls him out of the blue, he is set on a harrowing and completely unexpected journey.
The day after the call, the prime minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber while visiting San Francisco, and before long, Hana stands accused of masterminding the crime. Now David faces the dilemma of his life: will he represent this woman who may well be guilty and risk losing his fiancée (a strong supporter of Israel) and his political future? Or will he turn away from the women he can’t seem to forget?
At once an intricate tale of betrayal and deception, and a moving love story, Exile is Patterson at his mesmerizing best.
