Exciting murder story set in traditional Afghanistan
My rating: 5 out of 5
Zeba’s husband is found murdered, with Zeba sitting beside him covered in his blood. Why will Zeba say nothing about what happened?
A tales of suspense set in Afghanistan. Yusuf, brought up in the US, wants to defend Zeba, but with her continued silence over her husband’s death, struggles to build a defence. Meanwhile family lifestyles are explored, and the circumstances leading to the murder gradually become clear.
As Zeba sits in prison, awaiting her trial, so other women’s tales are heard, giving a fascinating insight into women’s lives in a traditional culture in Afghanistan.
5*s for this fascinating, and gripping story. Captivating stories of lives so different to what I have known, alongside a fast moving and exciting story. This is the second book I have read by this author, the first being The Pearl That Broke Its Shell, and I loved that too. Highly recommended read.
