“And What Can We Offer You Tonight is a deep dive into sacred revenge, a vivid, devastating and exquisite story of love and loyalty, among three friends who can ill afford such luxuries.” — L.X. Beckett, author of Gamechanger and Dealbreaker
“Mohamed weaves a most beautiful and powerful spell with a thin crust of gorgeous prose and coy smiles barely hiding the powerful, growing rage beneath. Much like the dead, it’s a tale that keeps haunting long after the story ends.” — Leigh Harlen, author of Queens of Noise
