Summary
In an alternate world without global terrorism, Joe, a private detective, is hired by a mysterious woman to track down the obscure creator of the fictional vigilante Osama bin Laden. Joe's quest to find the man takes him across the world, from the backwaters of Asia to the European capitals of Paris and London, and as the mystery deepens around him there's one question he's trying hard not to ask: who is he, really, and how much of the books are fiction? Chased by unknown assailants, Joe's identity slowly fragments as he discovers the shadowy world of the refugees, ghostly entities haunting the world in which he lives. Where do they come from? And what do they want? Joe knows how the story should end, but even he's not ready for the truths he'll find in New York and, finally, on top a quiet hill above Kabul--nor for the choice he will at last have to make
