      What happens when a British drug smuggler who had to leave Palestine years before in a hurry, cause one of his deals blew up, returns to help out a friend? Chaos ensuesThe book is oddly entertaining and I think a very interesting read, even though it can be a bit confusing at times.Even though the Palestine/Israel conflict isn't the center of the narrative of course it is a main character in the story.

      This was a fairly entertaining and dramatic book set in Israel/Palestine. It looks at the conflict and the ways people survive following a perpetually stoned protagonist ex-drug smuggler on the run.The weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the protagonist are really well explored and drawn out. It maybe could have had a bit more depth with regards to some of the plot twists and turns, but it all tied together fairly well.

      David Preston in the Dope Priest and he has a headache. If you've smuggled drugs out of war zones, you're not going to worry about a spot of illegal land trading between the Palestinians and Israelis. But David never planned on amorous nuns, kosher egg racketeers and the full might of the Israeli secret housing service. Even now, he feels he could cope. If only he could win the heart of the local drive-time DJ or at least find something decent to smoke.
