The choice he makes could cause him to lose his life at the hands of hisfather. The Executioner's Son is based on the Qur'an, Islamic customs and Islamic religious practices found in Saudi Arabia. Most of the events described in this book were seen or experienced by the author or described to the author by friends while in Saudi Arabia.
