Mon avis en Fran aisMy English review I expected a lot while starting this novel but it s true that I definitely did not expect that This is not an easy book to read, and the author wasn t easy about all the difficulties she has inserted in her book but that s also what s fascinating here.We discover a heroine that we do not necessarily have the habit of seeing Nora is an Egyptian American who made her little way in the police and tries to be strong if front of the ones who don t think she is ca [...]

Quicksand by Carolyn BaughWow I couldn t put this book down I loved it.Quite a short novel 215 pages, but definitely my kind of book a literate, interesting, fast paced story and the main characters, a team of FBI agents were well rounded people, not shallow figures, without substance, like in some thrillers I could really relate to the main detective and heroine, Nora Khalil, a Muslim girl with family problems I believe she is featured in other novels by Carolyn Baugh If so, I will definitely g [...]

Very strong start to a new series I particularly liked how the author balanced the revelation of Nora s backstory and work life relationships with developments in the case they re working.

Left my SFF comfort zone behind completely to read this, but that s the point of a book club, right Try something new.I ended up liking this book than I would have thought I usually don t read mysteries, and as soon as the first mutilated corpse showed up I was ready to put this on the NOPE shelf I can deal with demonic sorcerers being bad, or wicked aliens Evil humans well that s just not entertaining.The writing was quite good, though, and it s always interesting to read a story from the view [...]

I struggled through this book club selection The Hallmark Movie Channel may pick it up if they delete all the Criminal Minds violence I don t think the author knew whether he wanted to give his readers a bit of schmaltz and playful banter or violence and gore A lot of reviewers liked the Nora Khalil s character I could not get into her Sorry.An interesting note The other reviewers who rated it 1 star or 2 stars couldn t even be bothered to write a review Maybe they thought it was a waste of time [...]

Philadelphia policewoman Nora Khalil is an interesting character Her parents are Egyptian refugees Her mother is dead, but her father expects Nora to live the life of an Egyptian Muslim, but Nora is concerned with her job than her religion One of the most important job skills she has is her ability to connect with the Arab population in Philadelphia She can speak the language and knows the customs, therefore she has a better chance to engage with them and win their trust.Nora Khalil is a believ [...]

I enjoyed this book which made me wonder about its possibilities How hard would it be for a devout Muslim to work as a police officer Certainly not easy If Nora really was a practicing Muslim, I would say impossible.Nora is between a rock and a hard place Her father finds it hard to accept his little girl working with men, without special privileges, especially when she does not want to meet the groom candidates her aunt has selected for her Nora just wants to do her job, nothing else When her 1 [...]

I ended up liking the book less than I thought I would when I was 1 3 of the way through There were a few characters, members of rival gangs, who were mentioned but not given enough presence for me to really fix on who they were The main character is very interesting and the cultural aspects of the story are immersive and will get any feminist riled up I really dislike any book where a person is being tortured or mistreated and the author lets the reader share in the torment In this book, especi [...]

Liked this one a lot especially the character of Nora, whose ability to think fast comes across as wholly authentic in other words, she s not Jason Bourne in a ponytail Her world is gritty, but she never gives in to the negativity that s not to say she s naive or overly optimistic Instead, she navigates her world as a woman, as a Muslim, as a police officer in a way that doesn t compromise her integrity The mystery is interesting, but not quite as compelling as watching Nora deal with the extern [...]

Very entertaining book Main Character is a Muslim female Philly Cop who is assigned to an FBI Gang Task force Thought the issues surrounding a Female Muslim agent from a traditional family were handed very deftly and did not diminish the story but added depth to it A good beach read.
