How dismaying to read the analyzation of this book. The main character was the female protagonist. Not the male.
Hint: it began and ended with her. Another hint: the larger number of scenes were written in her POV.
The information about the male protag is wrong and most likely the result of cursory skimming. He is Turkish, a secular Muslim, and although born in Germany has US citizenship.
(Not uncommon. I know a number of people with this heritage pattern.)
Also: the villians are Serbs ---not Islamists.
(hence the quest for the icon) Islamists may be today's buzz, but they are not in this book.
Even my high school students read more closely than this.
