Summary "In July 2004, Norma Khouri, best selling author of 'Forbidden love', was exposed as a fake. She'd won fame and fortune as a Jordanian virgin on the run from Islamic extremists who'd put a Fatwah on her head for her campaign against honour killings. But she was really Norma Bagain, a Chicago real-estate agent and mother of two, on the run from the FBI for one million dollars of fraud. Spinning murder, politics, greed and literary scandal into a web that ensnares us all, Forbidden lies is a real life thriller about a brilliant con/artist, the people she's duped, and why, despite everything, we still want to believe her"--Container
