Matt Ruff's novels have always surprised me, and this one did, too. At first, I was strongly reminded of Michael Chabon's "The Yiddish Policeman's Union" because of the Muslim detectives and the alternate history of the world of the novel. Ruff leads in ways a little deeper and stranger than a thriller or mystery, although this novel can be described as both. Really, what he has written is a kind of alternate apocalyptic story. And, it's a great read!
