We gave it a B+

When the Israeli PM is gunned down on a San Francisco street in Richard North Patterson’s Exile, local lawyer David Wolfe decides to defend the Palestinian woman behind the assassination — who happens to be an ex from Harvard Law School.

Deep Thought
Standing on Mt. Scopus, looking down on Jerusalem, David ”could understand man’s desire to possess it.”

Lowdown
Although the thriller plot is flimsy, Exile‘s political backdrop is vividly wrought.
