This is a thick read You can t put it down for long because it jumps between timelines and POVs Given the political climate and world events, this is so poignant now. Whether or not tis in the mind nobler to disclose But disclosure is rarely noble Disclosure is transactional Disclosure is a ruse to create trust The best interrogators were the ones who were capable of manufactured empathy These lines occur half way down a page in a paragraph that is part of a narrative one of our main characters, Pierre, is thinking in This paragraph made me wonder whether Linden MacIntyre was in fact Lebanese and had lived or lives in Lebanon for it is these lines Whether or not tis in the mind nobler to disclose But disclosure is rarely noble Disclosure is transactional Disclosure is a ruse to create trust The best interrogators were the ones who were capable of manufactured empathy These lines occur half way down a page in a paragraph that is part of a narrative one of our main characters, Pierre, is thinking in This paragraph made me wonder whether Linden MacIntyre was in fact Lebanese and had lived or lives in Lebanon for it is these lines in this paragraph that encompass the whole of the way Lebanon works For the most part, it is exactly as he has written, disclosure is transactional This was a brutally honest book about Lebanon, the war crimes that occurred during the civil war, not the least of which was Sabra and Shatila and the people who perpetrated them The story of Pierre is complex, tragic and multidimensional just lik Received advance copy Excellent A son tries to put to put together the puzzle surrounding his father s disappearance and later death..as he puts the pieces together..many disturbing events happena combination of fiction and historical events of the Middle EastHighly recommended A good read for those unaware of the events in Palestine Israel in the 1980s and the effects on those who emigrated as a result Part spy novel and part coming of age, I found it an easy read but not engrossing It felt very much Canadian in perspective Not highly recommended but a simple read. 3.5 stars I enjoyed Punishment and The Bishop s Man very much, and was enthused to learn that Linden MacIntyre had a new novel just published The major focus of the book was the Lebanese Civil war and the massacres which ensued The story based on historic facts may be confusing to many readers, as it was to me This may have been deliberate The events themselves were confusing with numerous factions involved, and with many overt and covert actions and interference by the PLO and Israel among 3.5 stars I enjoyed Punishment and The Bishop s Man very much, and was enthused to learn that Linden MacIntyre had a new novel just published The major focus of the book was the Lebanese Civil war and the massacres which ensued The story based on historic facts may be confusing to many readers, as it was to me This may have been deliberate The events themselves were confusing with numerous factions involved, and with many overt and covert actions and interference by the PLO and Israel among others Mistrust and shifting alliances within Lebanon is noted, adding to the complicated narrative In 1982 Pierre came to Canada as a Lebanese refugee He settled in Cape Breton and later Toronto, finding success as a cooperate lawyer for an mining operation in Indonesia He was terminated as a scapegoat after some trouble at the mine site He was in Cape Breton on a boat The Only Caf was quiet He stood at the bar, ordered a beer, watched the door He wasn t sure what brought him back Perhaps the wall of memory, 1982, perhaps the suspicion that the fat stranger, Ari, might know something from behind that so far impenetrable wall There was no sign of him A grey haired man came into the store the other day, looking for a book on the Cold War era Soviet Union a particular book written by a man who had been his colleague back in the day at CSIS the Canadi The Only Caf was quiet He stood at the bar, ordered a beer, watched the door He wasn t sure what brought him back P Very compelling, page turning read, especially given the current political climate in the Middle East Hard to put down Highly recommended.
