Reem is twenty, bright and strikingly attractive. Nick is twenty-seven and, on his first posting abroad to a beautiful country torn apart by war, he is determined to make the world a better place. And though it seems a stroke of remarkably good fortune, it is by no means an accident when they meet in a fashionable bar, for Reem is a newly-trained terrorist, and has been sent out deliberately to distract Nick.
Nick has what Reem needs: access out of the city's besieged western sector, and to a notorious rightwing warlord who has his sights set on the country's presidency. For Reem, the fight is personal; she has lost both her family and her home, everything she has ever valued. So she volunteers for the ultimate mission: a suicide attack. And once Nick understands the truth, he needs to make a choice - to follow his heart, or carry out what his contacts at the British embassy insist is his duty.
John Fullerton writes about war, espionage, duty and conscience. Choosing exotic settings from his experiences as a Reuters correspondent, from Afghanistan and Bosnia to Lebanon and South Africa, he portrays the lone individual up against forces much more powerful than himself or herself, and the struggle for survival that inevitably ensues. He is the author of four novels, THE MONKEY HOUSE, A HOSTILE PLACE, THIS GREEN LAND and WHITE BOYS DON'T CRY.
