Early reviewers say:
"A smartly written tale of intrigue and betrayal"
"A rollercoaster ride of emotions, real life characters, and scenes that I feel I have lived myself"
"the Lebanese background is simply wonderfully done, from the mountain idylls through the city grime to the decadence of the casinos and the variety of Lebanese characters encountered"
Life in this beautiful old city offered everything. Mediterranean sun just two hours away from mountain snow. Exciting new friends - a madcap American journalist and his exotic Palestinian girlfriend. For newcomers to Beirut Richard and Claire Devine, there was no telling where the world ended and heaven began.
As clashes break out in the city suburbs, everyone knows it's no problem. 'The fighting will stop at the weekend so they can get to the beach.' It doesn't. And lives change. Forever.
Mysterious, funny, nerve-tingling, tragic. Join this Mid-East adventure with other readers, who say:
"I want readers to find this novel and share with me the joy of reading it"
"I can’t recommend this novel enough, or the intelligence and ingenuity of its author"
