The author manages to write a fast paced FBI story here. However, and it is a bit however.....it is a guise to tell us the reader that a 'good' Muslim is one who converts to American style evangelical Christianity. Let me quote at the point I gave up on this tale. The author is describing the scene at a dying Muslim child's bedside, with the mother on one side and the American teacher on the other. "...Jesus promises to take us to God's home. All we have to do is ask Jesus to live in our hearts, and Jesus will guide us home to God....and live forever...." says the teacher. We have had many descriptions of how bad the Muslims in the story are (all terrorists), no mention of the fact that Islam respects Jesus as a prophet, yet Christianity has no part for Mohommad at all. The inference is that there is no good Muslim.

I seriously wonder how this was selected for the library, although there is no mention of this undercurrent in the blurb or in reviews quoted.
While I do not subscribe to banning books, our libraries do have a role in selecting material.
