Praise for The Honored Dead
 
The Honored Dead is a rare treasure in which every word does quadruple duty. It’s a crackling whodunit, an incisive political thriller, and a vivid travelogue, told by a complicated, memorable, and eminently likable protagonist. Spectacular.”
—Dan Baum, author of Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans



“…one of the most affecting, sympathetic accounts of Arab culture in recent memory.” – Kirkus, starred review

“A scholarly and perceptive observer, Braude intersperses the cloak-and-dagger narrative of the murder mystery with digressions on Morocco’s history, geopolitics, and culture; the country’s rich Jewish heritage; the role that magic, sorcery, and dream interpretation play in Moroccan society. This lyrical and engrossing book puts a human face on this ‘moderate, constructive player’ in the politics of the Middle East, giving readers a firsthand glimpse of its glittering religious, intellectual, cultural history–and its future.”–Publishers Weekly


One of the smartest nonfiction titles for summer reading … Journalist Joseph Braude draws on his unusual experience embedded with a Moroccan security squad to tell the story of a murder investigation that becomes a fascinating journey into the backrooms and byways of an Arab society.” – Christian Science Monitor
