Faith Zanetti isn't covering Israel out of some kind of altruism. She's there because she got posted there by the fat drunk who is her foreign editor. And she loves it. It's hot, it's complicated, there's always some action and her friends are there, slouched at the bar of Jerusalem's American Colony hotel. But when Faith finds the naked corpse of her best friend, Shiv, hanging from the doorframe of her hotel room, she can't keep her journalistic distance any more!
