About the Novel
Blood Lily is a literary thriller about a modern Saudi woman – a royal – whose violent father embeds her in America with instructions to lead two brothers on a suicidal bombing mission on the Washington, DC, subway. Her whole life has been dictated by authoritarian strongmen and she is desperate to overcome them. The story is about the impacts of oppression and fear as much as it is a takedown of the autocrats and tyrants who would like to rule us all. Kirkus Reviews calls it “engrossing.” BookLife.com says it is a “propulsive” thriller, unique because its characters are so richly developed.
