In a world where secrets kill, an ex-cop discovers heâ€™s
got the biggest secret of all.â€¦
Set in a 21st-century Ottoman Empire, Jon Courtenay
Grimwoodâ€™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 doesnâ€™t
believe in: his father.
Ashraf Bey has been a lot of thingsâ€“and most of them
illegal. Now, having resigned as El Iskandryiaâ€™s Chief of
Detectives, heâ€™s taking stock of his life and thereâ€™s not
much: a mistress heâ€™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 heâ€™s never
known. But when the old Emirâ€™s security chief requests
that Raf come out of retirement to investigate an
assassination attempt on His Excellency, thatâ€™s exactly
what Raf gets. Now, disguised as an itinerant laborer, Raf
goes underground to discover a manâ€“and a pastâ€“he never
knewâ€¦and wonâ€™t survive again.
