City Of Veils
2 journalers for this copy...
THE VICTIM One scalding afternoon, the mutilated body of a young woman, half naked beneath her burqa, is discovered on a Saudi beach. Soon afterwards, a Western woman's husband vanishes without trace.
THE PLACE Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the City of Veils. A city of narrow streets and closed shutters, where nothing is what it seems, and the Empty Quarter - one of the most beautiful, yet unforgiving deserts on earth.
THE PEOPLE Miriam Walker, alone in an alien culture, desperate to find her missing husband. Katya, a forensic scientist battling the prejudices of a society full of sexual, religious and moral contradictions, and Nayir, devout Muslim, desert guide, amateur sleuth - the man she loves.

This is just as good as the earlier book though quite a disturbing read at times and especially what takes place in a car park towards the end of the book. On the other hand, it seems that our hero is finally showing some bravery on the romantic front. Will be interested to see if there are more tales featuring these characters in the pipeline.
