Rule No.1

(2003)
A novel by

 
 
Are You For Us Or Against Us?

Do you feel some things are too serious to be cause for laughter? If so, with all due respect, put the book down and move on - it's a comedy about terrorist atrocities, war, and the mass slaughter of innocents.

On the other hand, if the state of the world today so angers you that a novel ridiculing our 'enemies', our leaders and ourselves seems reasonable enough, then don't let go - it has a born-again President who nevertheless believes in the death penalty, it has misogynistic terrorists gagging for a piece of heavenly virgin, and it has a brutal dictator who considers himself a poet. It has a henpecked Prime Minister who only gets respect when he's bombing someone. It has ignorant Intelligence Agencies, and it has All-War, All-The-Time cable news. It has Stock Market insanity, mass paranoia, and collateral damage all around.

All in all, it's practically journalism. Except, that is, for its somewhat rotund hero, Saman Massoudi - an honest honey-merchant who, for reasons quite beyond his ability to grasp, is identified as a terrorist mastermind about to unleash a plague of killer bees on the West.

Unless, of course, we wage war on him first.

From the acclaimed author of Let There Be Lite and Something Sacred comes a new novel that is, as they say, based on a true story.
