I enjoyed learning about British run Palestine that Wilson inserts here and there in this novel. The mystery and intrigue intermingled with some historical characters made it well worth my time.

I enjoyed the flavor of the Middle East in A Palestine Affair, but when I finished the book, I don't know that I think that it was such a great read. It seemed to me that the depth of the book was not in the story line, but in the ability of the writer to convey the terrain, weather, etc. to the reader.

I decided to read this novel based on B&N's website promotion last week. Overall, the story was bland and I cared very little for the main characters.

Hard to believe this was written by a professor. Contrived story line where every woman is horny and orgasmic - the "heroine" taking a pee in the front garden of her home - give me a break! Readable, if only for the limited historic backdrop.
