Barnes & Noble
Selma Saddiqi, fired from the CIA, wants to prevent war between the US and Iran after two car bombings on American soil. Unfortunately, she’s a suspect and an analyst, not an action hero; she hesitates to risk herself to save others. Noah Amonie wants to solve the bombings because he blames himself for the death of one of the victims. Haunted by visions, Noah fears insanity and his dad’s involvement in the attacks.
Noah and Selma must learn to trust each other as they flee their surveillants to follow the clues. When they are betrayed into the wrong hands, however, they fear their journey has ended.
Following the structure of “The Waste Land,” WISECRACK reflects on national identities in flux and historical repetition and reverberation.
