Blaine Williams lives and breathes Casablanca.
He's trapped in a make-believe world of Bogart and Bergman, of smoke-filled cafés, of fugitives and hit-men.
And he's having a mid-life crisis.
Having lost his girl, his job, and his home, he flees to the one place that's always provided comfort in times of sorrow and despair — CASABLANCA.
Diving in at the deep end of Morocco's most misunderstood city, Blaine is sucked down through the many interwoven layers until he hits its bedrock… with a thump!
And it's there that he meets Ghita… a fabulously wealthy socialite, who's got a plan for him — one laced with intrigue and revenge.
Through an adventure paid out in twists and turns, Blaine and Ghita find themselves in a storyline straight out of Humphrey Bogart's Casablanca.
Hilarious, poignant, and shocking at times, CASABLANCA BLUES lifts the veil on modern Morocco, conjuring a secret realm hidden from travellers and locals alike.
From the acclaimed author of The Caliph's House.
