When Paul Stokes runs out of choices, his only path is betrayal.
The fragile peace is holding. Behind the scenes, the Israelis are competing for dwindling water resources as Jordan and Palestine face drought. Daoud Dajani has the solution to Jordan’s water problems and is bidding against the British for the privatisation of Jordan’s water network.
When journalist Paul Stokes befriends Dajani’s sister, Aisha, British intelligence agent Gerald Lynch realises Paul offers access to Dajani - the man threatening to drain Israel’s water supply and snatch the bid from the British. Blackmailed by Lynch into spying on Dajani, his movements seemingly linked to a series of bombings, Paul is pitched into a terrifying fight for survival that will force him to betray everyone around him.
Even the woman he loves.
Kept reading to the last page. Looking forward to the next book
Good read, a lot of surprises
A European in the middle east-stereotypes-love story-bombs.
The book is well written to the point where I could actually smell/feel/taste what the narrator was talking about and looking forward to turning the page to find out what happens next.
A great plot is there, it keeps you on your toes wondering, beautiful girl, love story, conflicts, spying, bombs...a very explosive cocktail for a book.
Anxiously waiting for the next book!
