Excerpt Book Summary A distraught woman writes a letter to Osama bin Laden after her four-year-old son and her husband are killed in a massive suicide bomb attack at a soccer match in London in this stunning first novel. A distraught woman writes a letter to Osama bin Laden after her four-year-old son and her husband are killed in a massive suicide bomb attack at a soccer match in London. But the bombing is only the beginning. While security measures transform London into a virtual occupied territory, the narrator, too, finds herself under siege.

At first she gains strength by fighting back, taking a civilian job with the police to aid the antiterrorist effort.

A surreal vision made brilliantly, viscerally powerful and undeniable, Incendiary is a stunning debut novel. The UK publisher immediately quieted its publicity machine and took down ads in the London Underground and Cleave posted a note to fans wondering whether he should continue promoting it.

The reaction from the USA publisher was quite different, with Knopf ramping up their publicity machine and the initial print run, and offering Cleave as a different kind of commentator on the tragedy saying, "We hear so much from talking heads and security experts, but what Chris brings to life is the real human experience of losing a loved one to an act of violence".

The post publication reviews in the UK, which are summarized below all but PW, Kirkus and Library Journal , are split passionately between people believing it to be a gritty portrayal of modern life and others believing it to be sensationalism. As always, you can browse an excerpt and decide for yourself. Dear Osama they want you dead or alive so the terror will stop. I suppose you thought of that did you? I have no information leading to your arrest or capture.

I have no information full effing stop. There is a difference you know. But just supposing I did clap eyes on you. Supposing I saw you driving a Nissan Primera down towards Haggerston and grassed you to the old bill.
