This is quite simply terrific. It is the first in a planned sequence of novels featuring the war correspondent Faith Zannetti and it starts with her being posted to Israel. Faith is a great creation the plot is fast and furious. Blundy wrote of her fatherâs death in El Salvador in Every Time we say Goodbye and her background shines through this.

Synopsis

Bad News Bible by Anna Blundy

Faith Zanetti isnât covering Israel out of some kind of altruism. Sheâs there because she got posted there by the fat drunk who is her foreign editor. And she loves it. Itâs hot, itâs complicated, thereâs always some action and her friends are there, slouched at the bar of Jerusalemâs American Colony hotel. But when Faith finds the naked corpse of her best friend, Shiv, hanging from the doorframe of her hotel room, she canât keep her journalistic distance any more…
