In a world where secrets kill, an ex-cop discovers he’s
got the biggest secret of all.…
Set in a 21st-century Ottoman Empire, Jon Courtenay
Grimwood’s acclaimed Arabesk series is a noir action-
thriller with an exotic twist. Here an ex-cop with nothing
to lose finds himself on the trail of a man he doesn’t
believe in: his father.
Ashraf Bey has been a lot of things–and most of them
illegal. Now, having resigned as El Iskandryia’s Chief of
Detectives, he’s taking stock of his life and there’s not
much: a mistress he’s never made love to, a niece everyone
thinks is mentally incompetent, and a credit card bill
rising towards infinity. With a revolt breaking out across
North Africa, the world seems to be racing Raf straight to
hell. The last thing he needs is a father he’s never
known. But when the old Emir’s security chief requests
that Raf come out of retirement to investigate an
assassination attempt on His Excellency, that’s exactly
what Raf gets. Now, disguised as an itinerant laborer, Raf
goes underground to discover a man–and a past–he never
knew…and won’t survive again.
