520    "When a dead woman is discovered in Abu Al Roos, one of 
       Mecca's many alleys, no one will claim the body because 
       they are ashamed by her nakedness. As we follow Detective 
       Nassir's investigation of the case, the secret life of the
       holy city of Mecca is revealed. Tackling powerful issues 
       with beautiful and evocative writing, Raja Alem reveals a 
       city--and a civilization--at once beholden to brutal 
       customs, and reckoning (uneasily) with new traditions. 
       Told from a variety of perspectives--including that of Abu
       Al Roos itself--The Dove's Necklace is a virtuosic work of
       literature, and an ambitious portrait of a changing city 
       that deserves our attention"--|cProvided by publisher.
