"The appearance of the young foreign couple caught the attention of nearly everyone on the Jemaa that night. The woman's beauty and the man's enigmatic behavior intrigued observers - but now on one can seem to agree on the details surrounding their disappearance. Each year, the storyteller, Hassan, gathers listeners to the city square to share their recollections of that night in an effort to understand what happened - and to absolve his younger brother, Mustafa, who is in jail for the crime. Convinced of his brother's innocence despite his disapproval of Mustafa's sybaritic ways, Hassan determinedly searches for the truth. But as his listeners offer contradicting testimonies, and details transform or dissolve in the haze of memory, the couple takes on an air as enigmatic as their fate, leaving us to wonder whether Hassan is succeeding in his quest or, more disturbingly, is himself part of the mystery."--Inside front jacket.
