In July 2004, Norma Khouri, the best-selling author of Forbidden Love, was exposed as a major literary fake. Her book, which had sold 250,000 copies worldwide, purported to tell of her experiences in Jordan where a friend, Dalia, had been stabbed to death by her father after she had fallen in love with a Christian man. Khouri claimed to have fled Jordan to Australia after being targeted with a fatwah over her campaign against honor killings. In reality she seems to have left Chicago in 1999 one step ahead of the FBI who wanted her for questioning over property transactions and other assorted frauds. Filmmaker Anna Broinowski has been able to get access to Khouri (or rather Norma Bagain) who emerges as a charismatic and manipulative figure, as well as to her victims and the law enforcement agencies she has left in her wake.
