This novel has it all. One part "The Bourne Identity," one part "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and one part "The Notebook," this poignant tale leaves the reader haunted by its characters long after the novel's final page has turned. Stuart and Angela Pierce, like many disillusioned careerists, are busy reinventing their lives. Stu reduces his airline flying schedule to train for triathlons, while Angie escapes the daily horrors of a prosecutor's job to pursue pro bono work. But death threats soon prove that the only thing Angie escaped was the protective arm of the District Attorney's office. With a graphic photo of a ritual stoning Stu's only tangible clue, he sets out to protect a wife who refuses to protect herself. Obsessed with catching a murdering rapist, Angie plunges them both into a web of global intrigue. But who, indeed what, is the real enemy? Honor. Love. Life. All are at stake as the Pierces struggle to uncover the truth, both the enemy's, and their own. Sometimes the biggest enemy can be the one right next to you... FACE OF OUR FATHER is too literary to be a thriller, yet too thrilling to put down-a unique blend of action and intimacy-a thriller with a soul. How often does fiction change how we define integrity, prejudice, and evil? To get at all that, a novel needs a rollercoaster of a plot coupled with an acute understanding of identity, love, and where these intersect. Test your beliefs. Read it.

About the Author
"Face Of Our Father" by G. Egore Pitir has all the ingredients of a sumptuous thriller: Violent, complex plot, bursts of intense action...an imperfect hero...a beautiful-yet-troubled love interest...realistic moral complexity that allows us to find ourselves doubting the heroes' purity of motives and, despite ourselves, feel a twisted sympathy, on some level, with the villains.
Furthermore, in light of current events, the story could have been pulled off the evening news...the author of "Face Of Our Father" succeeded where many have failed. This is a great thriller with a soul. -"The Columbia Review of Books & Film"
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I found it satisfying in the end. Many threads of hatred, love, jihad, power, corruption and patriotism woven into a thrilling whole.
When I first started reading the story I was confused because I thought the character from Prologue Zhueb Azwad was involved in the story and but instead meet Hosaam and Kashif. Later understanding comes that Zhueb was the ancestor of Uday. I think because of the confusion and trying to figure out the connection, it distracted me from getting into the story. I liked Stu and Angie's story line. It was complex with so many factors affecting them both as individuals even after 26 years of marriage. Deception between them almost cost them everything. I felt the characters showed a complexity that is not often seen. The scenes where Stu is fighting the urge to take a pill and Angie's burqa speaking to her showed flaws that made them real. Flaws that made them relatable and understandable. We are shown the perspective of devout believers of Islam and how even within there are strong differences of opinions. I think that is important to acknowledge that not everyone wants to be a soldier or be a part of jihad. The story is fast paced with an almost happy ending which adds to the reality of the story. I felt the events that played out could have happened somewhere in real life. Overall, good read for anyone who enjoys suspense and fast paced action. Look forward to reading the sequel.
