“Ferraris writes with authority on how Saudi insiders and outsiders alike perceive the United States…With equal authority, she stakes her own claim on the world map, opening Saudi Arabia up for mystery fans to reveal the true minds and hearts of its denizens.” Los Angeles Times
“Ferraris offers up a fascinating peek into the lives and minds of devout Muslim men and women while serving up an engrossing mystery…Highly recommended.” Library Journal
