"A powerful testimony to those seeking truth, remembrance and ultimately justice in the face of terrorism."—Magnus Ranstorp, author of Hizb’allah in Lebanon

"Lebanon is a country blessed with an abundance of fine lawyers and judges and a dysfunctional judicial system. Identifying the guilty is a very dangerous activity. Judges, politicians, journalists, and one university president, Malcolm Kerr, have been murdered over a number of years. In none of these cases do we officially know who did it. As the current president of the American University in Beirut I have conformed to the standard ostrich posture of the Lebanese polity. Malcolm was my colleague and friend. Susan Kerr van de Ven, in this book, has done what I have not dared to do."—John Waterbury, President of the American University of Beirut

"This story reminds us of the possibilities of true knowledge and advocacy. Van de Ven’s book is a personal triumph and a necessary, stunning read for all who continue to hope, quite desperately sometimes, for wiser days in our world."—Naomi Shihab Nye, author of 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poemsof the Middle East
