Editorial Reviews

Author of award-winning graphic novels and comics series, plus the memoir The Butterfly Mosque, about her conversion to Islam, Wilson offers a debut novel featuring an Arab-Indian hacker in an unspecified Middle East country. Alif, dedicated to protecting dissidents and others under surveillance, is forced underground when the woman he loves dumps him for a prince who turns out to be the dreaded ";Hand of God";—head of the state's electronic security forces. While in hiding, Alif discovers a secret book belonging to a jinn that could change the very concept of information technology. One of the publisher's big books of the season, this intriguing-sounding blend of cyberfantasy and the Arabian Nights will be backed by a ten-city tour.
