One day, to her great surprise, theMoreDevoted mother, soon-to-be divorced wife, attractive lover of an American television correspondent, Dahlia Barr is a brash and successful Israeli attorney famous for defending Palestinians accused of terrorism. One day, to her great surprise, the national police approach Dahlia with a proposition: Join us, and become the government’s primary arbiter for when the use of harsh interrogation methods on prisoners—some would say torture—may be allowed. Dahlia has no intention of permitting the police to use this weapon of last resort.Then, one horrible day, Dahlia’s son Ari, a 20-year old lieutenant in the Israel Defense Forces, is kidnapped by Hezbollah terrorists, taken to a secret location, and tortured. And the one man who may hold the key to Ari’s rescue is an old acquaintance of Dahlia’s, currently locked in an Israeli jail. A thrilling story, pulsing with insight into the inner-workings of the human heart, The Lie is the unforgettable story of human beings on both sides of the terror equation whose lives turn out to share more than enmity.
