10 WOMEN TO WATCH IN 2017—BookPage

A New York Times Notable Book of 2017

After one night's deadly mistake, a man will go to any lengths to save his family and his reputation.

Neurosurgeon Eitan Green has the perfect life—married to a beautiful police officer and father of two young boys. Then, speeding along a deserted moonlit road after an exhausting hospital shift, he hits someone. Seeing that the man, an African migrant, is beyond help, he flees the scene.

When the victim's widow knocks at Eitan's door the next day, holding his wallet and divulging that she knows what happened, Eitan discovers that her price for silence is not money. It is something else entirely, something that will shatter Eitan's safe existence and take him into a world of secrets and lies he could never have anticipated.

WAKING LIONS is a gripping, suspenseful, and morally devastating drama of guilt and survival, shame and desire from a remarkable young author on the rise.

This is a very absorbing story that really gets into the main characters minds. The book is exciting and held my interest. I could see this book being made into a movie.

This well written novel draws you in from the beginning, creating a relationship with its characters. It's gripping premise is followed with layers of action that lead to ethical questions and observations you might not have expected to reach. Will stay with me and be recalled as I meet and think of emigrants to our country.

This is a fascinating book; with a theme of does the mean justify the end. "Begins with such velocity that you can't put it down." The Guardian
