Beschreibung

The newest thriller from the author of The Amateur Spy and The Prisoner of Guantnamo (Worthy of sharing shelf space with the novels of John le Carr and Ken FollettUSA Today) is as dazzling as its setting.Sam Keller has been enlisted by his V.P. for Corporate Security and Investigation to spy on another employee while theyre traveling for the company. Ordinarily careful to a fault, Sam decides to live it up. What better spot for business-class hedonism than boomtown Dubai, where resort islands materialize from open ocean, fortunes are made overnight, and skiers crisscross the snowy slope of a shopping mall.But when Sams charge is murdered during a night on the town, it is only the first in a series of bewildering events that plunge him waist-deep into a lethal mix of mobsters, prostitutes, crooked cops, consuls, and corporate players. Offering a chancy way out is Anwar Sharaf, the unlikeliest of detectives. A former pearl diver and gold smuggler with an undignified demeanor, Sharaf is sometimes as baffled as Sam by the changes to his homeland, especially as they are embodied in the behavior of his rebelliously independentand hauntingly beautifuldaughter. But he knows where the levers of power reside. As the unlikely duo work their way toward the heart of the case, each man must confront the darkest forces threatening Dubai from within.Here is Dan Fespermans most suspenseful novel yet: a stunning portrait of a city whose mysterious rhythm (like the precision throb of an artificial heart, clicking and insistent, yet cool to the touch) is underscored by the insistent clashing of old and new.From the Hardcover edition.
