Kuala Lumpur, 1988. While investigating a devastating act of constitutional violence, American lawyer Juliet Elms Morton discovers a world of dazzling beauty, rich pageantry and sacred ritual, forcing her to review her beliefs about Islam, faith, justice and the circumstances surrounding her father's brutal murder. Coup d'Etat is at once a political thriller, a brilliant examination of cultural differences and an indelible, unforgettable portrait of an extraordinarily diverse nation.
