A powerful first novel that engages the tumultuous events of today: at once an intimate portrait of a group of young Arab Muslims living in the United States, and the story of one man's journey into-and out of-violence. We first meet Aziz Arkoun as a 24-year-old stowaway-frozen, hungry, his perceptions jammed by a language he can't understand or speak. After 52 days in the hold of a tanker from Algeria, he jumps into the icy waters of Boston harbor and swims to shore. Seemingly rescued from isolation by Algerians he knew as a child, he instead finds himself in a world of disillusionment, duplicity, and stolen identities, living a raw comedy of daily survival not unlike what he fled back home. As the story of Aziz and his friends unfolds-moving from the hardscrabble neighborhoods of East Boston and Brooklyn to a North African army camp-Harbormakes vivid the ambiguities of these men's past and present lives: burying a murdered girl in the Sahara; reading medieval Persian poetry on a bus, passing for Mexican; shoplifting Versace for clubbing, succumbing to sex in a public library; impersonating a double agent. But when Aziz begins to suspect that he and his friends are under surveillance, all assumptions-his and ours-dissolve in an urgent, mesmerizing complexity. And asHarborraces to its explosive conclusion, it compels us to question the questions it raises: Who are the terrorists? Can we recognize them? How do they live? A debut novel as evocative as it is convincing-a groundbreaking work that announces a fearless new voice in American fiction. From the Hardcover edition.
In a small coastal Maine town, a killer strikes--then disappears without a trace. Shattered by her father's murder, Zoe West abandoned her plans to become an FBI agent and left her hometown of Goose Harbor, Maine. But a new home and job did nothing to get her life back on track, and now Zoe knows only one thing will--returning to Goose Harbor and confronting the past. FBI Special Agent J. B. McGrath is "on vacation"--the Bureau's version of "Get your act together, or else. . . " Burned-out after working undercover for a year, J. B. agrees he needs a break, and chooses Goose Harbor as a retreat. But he isn't lying low. He believes a killer is still loose in the town--a killer who isn't happy to see Zoe West return. Zoe isn't sure she can trust the unpredictable FBI agent--or their growing attraction to each other. But as the danger mounts, one wrong move could destroy everything she and J. B. care about. Because someone got away with murder and is determined to keep it that way.
