Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Amin Jaafari, an Israeli-Arab, is a contented man. Happily married and a respected surgeon, he has chosen to heal, not to fight. Suddenly his world explodes. His beloved wife is killed in a suicide bombing, and the police believe she was the bomber. Drowning in grief, Jaafari attempts to make sense of what he finds impossible to believe. Whether creating people brainwashed by desperation, brutal militant factions, or inhumane Israeli soldiers, Stefan Rudnicki’s deep baritone, lightly accented enunciation, and textured characterizations are relentlessly, painfully true to life, revealing a man in anguish and a world out of control. Yasmina Khadra (the nom de plume of Mohammed Moulessehoul, an Algerian exile) has written a thoughtful, thought-provoking book, and Stefan Rudnicki’s performance is urgent, immediate, and agonizing.
