The first of a series of literary mysteries set in Saudi Arabia. (the 3rd is now out in hardback). Finding Nouf gives us an enlightening picture of the lives of everyday Saudi men and women, the common frustration at the constraints of the pious and strict society and a thoroughly addictive couple of sleuths in Nayir ash-Sharqi, a desert guide and Katya Hijazi a lab technician and educated modern woman who dares to work in public and uncover her face.
