Rarely has an American novel packed such a powerful one-two punch of classic crime narrative and authentic foreign intrigue as does Joseph Koenig's new thriller, Brides of Blood, which features a mesmerizing glimpse inside the seething cauldron of corruption that is post-revolutionary Iran.
From the Shi'ite guerilla training camps of southern Lebanon to inside the walls of the world's most infamous torture chamber; from the teeming bazaar of Teheran to the supernal calm of the sweltering holy city of Qom . . . Brides of Blood, rich in atmosphere and bristling with suspense, hurtles to a stunning conclusion that confirms Joseph Koenig's reputation as a new master of the international crime thriller.
Joseph Koenig's first novel Floater, was nominated for an Edgar award in 1986. He is the author of two subsequent novels, Little Odessa, and Smugglers Notch. In the process of writing Brides of Blood, Koenig spent two years researching present-day Iran.
