Book Review: 'The Wandering Falcon'
MELISSA BLOCK, Host:
Alan Cheuse has a review of "The Wandering Falcon."
ALAN CHEUSE: And Ahmad's voice, like that of an old storyteller of which he writes addressing an intertribal conclave about the consequences of a kidnapping. Ahmad's voice is usually clear and sharp like the sound of plucked strings from a musical instrument.
