""Exile" is an astonishing book, a hugely entertaining human drama that also offers remarkable insight into the lethal conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Richard North Patterson has outdone himself--"Exile" is his best novel yet."--Bill Clinton "Through his artful writing, Patterson presents compelling arguments for both sides while avoiding a preachy tone -- a pitfall a lesser writer easily could succumb to. Weaving a powerful love story into this vast portrait of political divisiveness is no small feat, but Patterson does it gracefully... In "Exile," Patterson has redefined himself as a writer willing to take risks while seeking to understand one of the world's seemingly unsolvable problems."--"USA Today""" "Torn from the headlines..."EXILE "delivers." --"The New York Times Book Review "
