About the Book

'Beautiful, lyrical, sensitive and meaningful . . . It deserves to be read and re-read.' Los Angeles Times

Two deadly enemies - a young Arab rebel and a Jewish runaway - meet in a remote valley to begin a quest.

Both have been taught since infancy to hate; to attack for self-defence. But something incredible is happening to them, something that not even the fierce shelling of the Six-Day War can intrude upon. For they are on a fantastic mission, a mission both believe has been set for them by God . . .

Gripping, exciting and incredibly poignant, Smith's Gazelle is an intriguing thriller from a master of the genre.
