  • Social change launched by a damn good story

    "Murder Under the Bridge" offers no stereotyped heroes or villains, and advocates no simple solutions. It throws the reader into the middle of a notoriously intractable political and military conflict. In spite of ourselves, we stay up late hoping that Benny the Israeli police captain will turn out to be the good guy he claims to be. We curse when a boy confesses to a crime we want to believe he could not have committed, and cheer when a hard-bitten Palestinian official lies to his Israeli overseer in order to protect the policewoman who has earned his respect and trust. Kate Raphael picks up where John Le Carré, another genre-bending author, left off with "The Little Drummer Girl," his damn good story embedded in an account of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

  • Murder under the Bridge

    While the book started with much promise, even offering potential insight in how Palestinians and Israelies may gradually be able to work together on some common yet sensitive issues. Then it seemed to lose its way, and make an external third person the hero, with little positive value to helping understand and even offer hope for the future. By the end I was very disappointed with the book and some simplistic, even gratuitous events

  • Too biased

    A very biased depiction of a complicated issue. A more even-handed approach would have made the book palatable. I don't recommend reading it.

  • Fabulous book!

    For those of us who have little or no understanding of what the Israeli/Palestine situation is, this is a great book. It’s really scary. Two of the main characters are almost constantly in danger. The characters, and there are many, are extremely well written.

    Thanks for your feedback!
