The Lie (Hardcover)
A "page-turner that will engage your mind and emotions in a way few novels do" (Stephen King) about a left-wing Israeli lawyer--famous for defending Palestinians--whose views face the ultimate test when her own son is captured and tortured by terrorists.
DAHLIA BARR DOES NOT SUFFER FOOLS--or her own government, with which she is normally at odds. Shrewd, brash, and as tough as she is beautiful, the controversial Israeli attorney specializes in defending Palestinians accused of terrorism. She is also a devoted mother, a soon-to-be-divorced wife, and the lover of a handsome American television cor-respondent.
To Dahlia's astonishment, the Israeli secu-rity establishment one day approaches her with a tantalizing proposition: Join us, and become the beleaguered nation's arbiter on when to use the harshest of interrogation methods--what some would call torture. Dahlia is intrigued. She has no intention of permitting torture. Can she change the system from within?
Then, as Dahlia settles into her new job, her son Ari, a twenty-year-old lieutenant in the Israel Defense Forces, is kidnapped by Hezbol-lah and whisked over the border to Lebanon. The one man who may hold the key to Ari's rescue is locked in a cell in police headquar-ters. Edward Al-Masri--professor, activist, media gadfly--is an Arab who has a long and complicated history with Dahlia. And he's not talking. Yet.
The Lie is a nail-biting thriller, pulsing with insight into the inner workings of Israel's secu-rity apparatus. It is an unforgettable story of human beings on both sides of the terror equa-tion whose lives turn out to share more in common than they--and the reader--could ever have imagined.
This book is SO amazing! A beautifully written scientific and personal memoir that is informative, touching, heart-breaking, and inspiring. Jahren’s descriptions of her life and scientific research into the intricacies of the plant world are as poetic and poignant as it gets. The story weaves through her early upbringing in Minnesota, her education, starting her lab with her lovable and eccentric lab partner Bill. It then follows her finding love, motherhood, and her ground-breaking geobiology research. Reading this is like taking a walk through the forest with a friend. Every word is filled with authenticity and a fervent passion for science and this book makes me proud to be studying to become a scientist. It’s a must read for those interested in the natural world or any human who has ever had feelings.
