Fesperman uses an effective shifting view point (Skelly, the American foriegn correspondent, Najeeb his fixer and Daliya Najeeb's girlfriend) to keep the story moving. His descriptions of not only Pakistan & Afghanistan locals and culture carry an authenticity, but especially his descriptions of the lives/personalities of foriegn correspondents.

The one criticism is that the concluding action is not entirely clear, I mean the ending is clear, but how we get there and how it happens is subtley drwan to the point of being unclear and somewhat unsatisfying.
