A Thousand Veils by D. J. Murphy

When Fatima Shihabi, an Iraqi poet and journalist, learns she is marked for death by Saddam Husseins secret police, she flees Iraq, evading Saddams helicopters hunting her in the desert, only to discover that no other country will grant her asylum. Her flight from Saddams vengeance, and the extraordinary efforts of Charles Sherman, a Wall Street lawyer, to save her life, is the subject of this gripping novel, inspired by a true story. How Fatima and Charles, bound by their common humanity, love for each other, and fate, manage to thwart Saddam and achieve redemption sends a powerful message to the post-9/11 world. Their story points the way toward eventual reconciliation and synthesis between Islam and the West. D.J. Murphy is a retired international lawyer, whose practice included representation of refugees seeking asylum in the United States. The author contributes ten percent (10%) of net royalties derived from this book to the United Nations High Commission on Refugees.
