Autumn Of The Phantoms by Yasmina Khadra is the enthralling tale of an Algerian policeman-turned-detective and writer who, as a result of his latest book, losses his well established job. Main character, Brahim Llob, after publishing his latest book, is confronted with his peers condemnation and consideration of his dishonor, causing his visit to his hometown which results in an attack from GIA commando.

Highly recommended, Autumn Of The Phantoms is an excellent addition to all mystery buff reading lists.
