The story of a 16-year-old young woman's inexplicable death by drowning in the middle of the desert just before her wedding is told from the point of view of a conscientious but conservative male friend of the family. Pete Bradbury's solemn, rich baritone evokes the striking landscape and culture of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The novel explores a young woman’s acculturation into the hierarchy of a wealthy family as the question at the heart of the story—what really happened to Nouf—pulls the listener into this complicated murder mystery. Bradbury shifts between the male narrator and a supporting female character who aids in a secret investigation even after the family of the late young woman has accepted her death as an accident.
