A young, beautiful Jewish-American woman is willingly recruited by the Israeli secret service to seduce and marry a rich Saudi in order to live in his country as a mole. But as Lisa Cooper waits to be called into action in a land much different from her home, she finds herself falling in love with her handsome, intelligent husband - even though he already has a wife. Lisa learns that she must live in the family compound, spend her days in a harem, and protect herself against her brother-in-law, who suspects she is a spy. As the political situation in the Middle East heats up, Lisa must protect her identity at all costs and avoid the traps set by her brother-in-law to expose her - a situation that would lead to her certain death. When she is finally called to duty by Mossad, she's torn between betraying the husband she has grown to love and the people to whom she has pledged allegiance.

Loved it! I wish that there had been more. Got me very interested in the life of women in Saudi Arabia. It was a very well researched book. A worthwhile read. Read full review
