Critical Praise

"The Iranian revolution provides the backdrop for this meticulously researched, fast-paced stand-alone from Hellmann…this political thriller will please established fans and newcomers alike."

—Publishers Weekly

"Hellmann crafts a tragically beautiful story around a message that is both subtle and vibrant. The author does an amazing job of delivering her point but never by sacrificing the quality of her storytelling. Instead, the message drives the psychological and emotional conflict painting a bleak and heart wrenching tale that will stick with the reader long after they finish the book."

Crimespree Magazine

"Libby Hellmann's A Bitter Veil brings a lyrical, literary dimension to her writing. Readers will be fascinated--- as I was --- by this glimpse behind the veil of Revolutionary Iran and how a young American woman deals with her Iranian husband and family."

—Cara Black, Author of the Amy Leduc Investigations set in Paris
