The distance from Jerusalem down to Jericho in the Jordan River valley is only about fifteen miles. From there up into the Moabite hills of Jordan is but another ten miles, distances a man can walk in one night. When adversaries live at such close quarters they affect each other in strange and unsuspected ways.

Not quite fiction, not quite reality — the entire Jerusalem Quartet is at times an uneven mess, at times brilliant and at other times in need of an editor and author with more time, but by the end, in the final book, I've found no better explanation of the half century of chaos and violence that is living in a middle eastern war zones. Required reading before you open your mouth about this era's missteps into the same.
