Ahmed, a society photographer in a celebrated Cairo nightclub, witnesses a friend horrifically killed in a fight between young business rivals. Forced to escape the scene of the crime and go into hiding, Ahmed is ensnared in a web of cover-ups and crimes whose perpetrators stop at nothing to hide. In this sprawling political thriller, Ahmed is forced to confront ruthless players. It's a game where the penalty for failure could be his life.

First published in Arabic in 2007, and by BQFP in 2010, this is a tense thriller that exposes contemporary Egypt and Cairo's seedy nightlife.

I read the arabic and original version of the novel and it was the first thing to read for this young author and honestly i love it , although i think i prefer " Diamond Dust - Turab Al-mas" which is the second novel he wrote . This one is full of details and will take you very deep in the games of business in Egypt . Enjoy it
