The Attack – Yasmina Khadra

This politically charged novel, set in Tel Aviv, was spellbinding. Despite being an extremely successful surgeon, the main character is subject to prejudice from the Jewish population for being an Arab and also from the Islamic population for not  being a devout Muslim. When his beautiful, happy wife is suspected of being a suicide bomber, all the prejudices come to the fore and we watch his life spiral out of control.  The writing is flawless and I highly recommend it.
