Overview

In Baghdad, masked gunmen massacre a prominent Iraqi family. U.S. Army Intelligence recruits Dr. Liam Casey, a trusted family friend, to find Tamara Najib. As the lone survivor of the mass murder, Tamara has disappeared.

Casey, a former military surgeon who had served in Iraq, is a victim of post-traumatic stress. Now a recovering alcoholic, he is desperate to put his life back together.

Before he embarks on the quest, an enigmatic and strong-willed woman, Lilly Jones, befriends him. Who is she, and why is she so intent on helping him? Attracted to her and needing companionship, Casey accepts her help.

Racing against the clock and shuttling between Iraq, the United States, and England, they find themselves plunged into a web of terror by those who will do anything to keep the truth hidden.

Meet the Author

I've lived among four completely different cultures: Persian, Russian, British, and American. Confusing as hell. So in my late teens and early twenties, I kicked around looking for my place in the world. From yearning to be a professional athlete to a guitarist to an all-around loafer, I finally settled on surgery. Of course, that came as a shock to my parents, who had long given up hope of me doing anything useful with my life. Somehow I managed a successful career as a university surgeon. I belong to numerous medical and scientific organizations, have published extensively in the medical literature, and received numerous awards for excellence in teaching. But most rewarding of all, I alleviated a lot of suffering.

But there was another mountain to climb: fiction writing. Why? I used to tell stories to my three kids before tucking them in bed. Based on my speckled background, those were ad-lib tales, never-ending cliffhangers, that did anything but put the little imps to sleep. Probably prodded by my loving wife, in their later years the children kept asking me why I didn't write novels. So I did.
