World Fantasy Award-vinnande roman av författaren till The Bookman Histories.
Noir, thriller och alternativhistoria i en inspirerad blandning!

I en värld utan global terrorism lejer en mystisk kvinna privatdetektiven Joe för att finna en man: den obskyre författaren till en serie pulpromaner med en viss Osama Bin Ladin: Vigilante som huvudperson.
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 is one question he is trying hard not to ask: who is he, really, and how much of the books is 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 is 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.
In Osama, Lavie Tidhar brilliantly delves into the post-9/11 global subconscious, mixing together elements of film noir, non-fiction, alternative history and international thriller to create an unsettling - yet utterly compelling - portrayal of our times.
