Zoe Ferraris’ first novel, Finding Nouf , is a detective story. Not my favorite genre. It always seems that the author promises to have given you enough clues, but the critical element is withheld so that you can’t quite solve the problem on your own. That is the case here, and the whodunit aspect feels familiar even to someone who doesn’t read many detective novels. What the author is attempting, though, is something a bit more daring.
