Finding Nouf
fullDescription

A Palestinian P.I. investigates the death of a pregnant Saudi teenager in a mystery that offers "a fascinating glimpse into the workings...of Saudi society" (Publishers Weekly).

When sixteen-year-old Nouf ash-Shrawi goes missing, her prominent family calls on desert guide Nayir al-Sharqi to lead a search party. Ten days later, Nouf's body is discovered. The coroner determines that she was several weeks pregnant. But even more unsettling is that she died not of dehydration but from drowning. Though her family is suspiciously uninterested in getting at the truth, Nayir is determined to find out what happened.

Now Nayir, a gentle and pious Palestinian living in Saudi Arabia, must delve into Nouf's secret life—no easy task in one of the world's most rigidly gender-segregated societies. Shocked by the idea of a woman baring her face and working in public, Nayir realizes that to gain access to the hidden world of Saudi women, he will have to join forces with Katya Hijazi, a lab worker at the coroner's office. As their partnership leads to surprising revelations, it also challenges Nayir, bringing him face to face with his desire for female companionship and the limitations imposed by his beliefs.
