Review - The Velvet Interrogation

My rating:

Chet is an American diplomat based in Beirut in the early 1990s when he is tasked to retrieve a busload of people from a Palestinian refugee camp in the south. The Embassy has received word that Israel plans to bomb the camp, but they will allow the Americans to take out relatives of Embassy employees, as long as they aren’t young men, who are always perceived as potential terrorists. Unfortunately, many of the people on the approved list can’t be found, or are unwilling to trust the Americans.
