Winner of the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award

 

Syria, 1970. Michael Howell has kept his family’s Middle Eastern business enterprises going through a decade of takeovers, war, and revolution, thanks in part to his office manager, Teresa, who is also his mistress. One late night at the office, they discover men working overtime—producing unauthorized bombs for the Palestine Action Force. Worse, this guerrilla terrorist group is not deterred by their discovery—rather, they will enlist Howell and Teresa’s unwilling help in carrying out their plan.
