The Ramadan Drummer by Randolph Splitter

Mystery Thriller Crime and Horror

In this story about clashing values and the search for connection in a multicultural world, the drummer wakes the faithful during Ramadan in the Muslim neighborhood of Little Mecca, but wakes nonbelievers too. As anti-Muslim activists picket, shots ring out and a child is wounded. During the course of his investigation, police detective Ezra Kaufman meets reporter Aisha Hassan, an observant though liberal-minded Muslim who is covering the story. At a party, the young daughter of a prominent Muslim family initiates a sexual encounter with an older teenage boy. Somebody posts photos of the incident on Facebook, and the girl disappears. Ezra and Aisha get involved. $2.99 from Amazon
