Only the Dead Know Peace is a powerhouse book. An adrenaline-fueled epic that is authentic, propulsive, timely, and unforgettable. It will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very last page.” ~Don Winslow

In the spirit of The CartelThe Little Drummer Girl, and I Am Pilgrim, Alberto Mansur’s debut thriller offers a bracing, wide-angle portrait of the fence dividing Israel and Palestine, the most controversial border on earth. It follows a diverse cast of characters as they fight for love, belief, country, and power.

In Israel and Palestine, religious and political tensions are boiling, threatening to explode an untenable status quo. A renowned baker and his son are at odds, one turning his back on Allah, the other determined to prove himself worthy of God’s love. A rich playboy shatters his life in the States and joins Israel’s special forces searching for purpose and meaning. An Israeli vixen with a tragic past and a penchant for violence finds herself torn between her work for the Russian mob and the people she loves. And a charismatic Jewish leader starts a movement with the most surprising goal of all.

These characters and more touch each other’s lives as they weave a tangled web of passion, violence, intrigue, and political and religious manipulation.
