About this product
- DescriptionIn this mystery of cold beauty and dark isolation, written with crystalline precision (Miami Herald), a series of crib deaths in Syracuse, New York, draws the attention of police and national media. Is a serial infant murderer at large?A haunting story, icy cold in its upstate New York setting but glowing with the unusual brightness of its heroine (Eugene Weekly), Origin stars a solitary fingerprint examiner who finds herself playing a critical role in the case. Diana Abu-Jaber, a gifted and graceful writer (Chicago Tribune), masterfully transcends formula (Kirkus Reviews) as the tension of Origin escalates, shaped as much by beautifully nuanced prose as menacing events (New York Daily News). Reading group guide included.
- Author BiographyDiana Abu-Jaber is the award-winning author of four novels, including Crescent, and two memoirs, Life Without a Recipe and The Language of Baklava. She and her family divide time between Miami, Florida, and Portland, Oregon.
