In British-occupied Palestine after World War One, a beleaguered London painter and his American wife witness the murder of an Orthodox Jew. She is drawn into an affair with the British investigating officer, while he seeks solace in painting. Each had come to Palestine to escape grief, and were forced to confront the political and personal issues they had left behind.

A Palestine Affair was published in the USA by Pantheon/Anchor, a division of Random House in July 2004.

Reviews of the American edition:

“Wilson is a talented writer with a gift for story, scene and character.” – The Boston Globe

“A story that tautens the sinuous strands of (the) period into a lethal knot.“– New York Times Book Review

“A swift little mystery-romance… Crisply written… Wonderfully rich in period detail and atmosphere…” – Seattle Weekly
