David is groggy and the directions to the ksar are vague  Suddenly two young men spring from the roadside apparently attempting to interest passing drivers in the fossils they have for sale  Panicked David swerves toward the two leaving one dead on the road and the other running into the hills At the ksar the festivities have begun Richard and Dally’s international friends sit down to a lavish dinner prepared and served by a large staff of Moroccans  As the night progresses and the debauchery escalates the Moroccans increasingly view the revelers as the godless infidels they are  When David and Jo show up late with the dead body of the young man in their car word spreads among the locals that David has committed an unforgi.

    eBook Lawrence Osborne Î eBook The Forgiven ePUB Þ Î analogavalljud.co forgiven mobile, The Forgiven KindleMy ThoughtsThis was very good Not fast paced but a slow simmering suspense I’m going to share one extra tidbit to make this even enticing The father of the young man that David struck and killed shows up at the ksar He wants David and ONLY David to come back to their village to attend his son’s burial and as such atone for what he didOh really? A bereaved Muslim father wants an unbeliever an infidel to come alone to their distant village What happens to David? And in David’s absence what’s his wife up to? The Muslim servants at the party find out very early about the “accident” This along with the hedonistic activities that are taking place also creates an undercurrent of tension Does anyone come out of this unscathed?Well written Heart Pounding Descriptive SizzlingBravo Mr OsborneThank you Crown Publishing and Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased reviewPublish date September 25 2012

    eBook Lawrence Osborne Î eBook The Forgiven ePUB Þ Î analogavalljud.co forgiven mobile, The Forgiven KindleI chose to read this book based on the books synopsis on Goodreads It sounded alluring What I found this book to be was the Great Gatsby set in Morrocco Full of superficial wealthy characters who spend there days worrying about what they will eat next and what parties they will go smoke weed at or get drunk at next I also felt the author gave way too much detail on insigniciant parts of the story I cant say that he doesn't pay attention to detail it was overkill though Political commentary on Muslims Americans Ira etc I think he had to make to storyline fit the title and it wasn't really smooth I am sure glad this was a free download from my library
