"Set in the aftermath of Iran's fraudulent elections of 2009, Zahra's Paradise is the fictional story of the search for Mehdi, a young protestor who has vanished into an extrajudicial twilight zone.

It is the grit and guts of his mother, who refuses to surrender her son to fate, and the tenacity of his brother, a blogger, who fuses tradition and technology to explore and explode the void in which Mehdi has vanished"--Publisher's web site

El paraiso de Zahra by Amir( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Irán, junio de 2009. Mehdi , un joven de 19 años, desaparece en Teherán durante las manifestaciones de protesta contra el fraude en la elección del presidente del gobierno. Su madre, Zahra, y su hermano, emprenden una búsqueda desesperada que los conducirá a los peores rincones burocráticos de un régimen corrupto. Tienen que demostrar algo que su gobierno no reconoce: que hay personas desaparecidas en prisiones gubernamentales, presos cuyos derechos humanos se violan a diario. Su periplo los llevará a hospitales y morgues, al tribunal de instrucción y a las prisiones, y nos descubrirá el Irán cotidiano, donde un taxista o el dueño de una copistería pueden marcar la diferencia en la lucha por la libertad. Dos autores iraníes, protegidos por el anonimato para evitar represalias, nos presentan una conmovedora historia inspirada en hechos reales
