Overview

Katrina Lashes Arabia

Katrina Owens is a 40ish American nurse working in a Riyadh hospital in Saudi Arabia where she is charge-nurse in the ER. After six years in the desert kingdom, the outrageous Katrina now has her belly full of the severely dysfunctional Saudi society. Especially fed up with the oppression of women, she is itching to finish her contract so she can move on to a hospital job in more liberal Dubai. But on the same day that Hurricane Katrina hits her hometown of New Orleans, Katrina is harassed by a religious fanatic in a Riyadh bazaar. Hefty enough to defend herself, Katrina goes ballistic. She's guilty of the unforgivable crime-humiliating a Saudi male in public.
To avoid arrest and imprisonment, Katrina takes refuge on the palace grounds of a powerful Saudi prince. As she settles in under his generous patronage, she realizes that he will secure for her an Exit visa only if she agrees to satisfy his Submissive needs. At the same time, she finds herself in the middle of palace intrigue involving biological weapons under development in the palace clinic. She has landed in the center of an international plot. The wily Katrina must elude her male oppressors as she outwits the tyrannical government that aims to imprison her . . . or worse.

    I LOVED this book. I finished it in two days! Very easy read, and highly intriguing. I wish more gals in this culture would put on their big girl panties, throw off the veil and lives their lives out loud instead of under the shroud of male dominion.

    Katrina really gives them a what for. When I visualized Katrina, Queen Latifah kept coming to mind. This could be an hilarious movie!

    I am 91 years old and a professional librarian who reads books constantly. I wasn't excited about this book and initially didn't even like Katrina. Eventually I did like her and noticed that Mr. Perez did such a good job keeping everything straight in such a complicated plot which gave insight into the treatment of women in Saudi Arabia and the fact that the royalty has no concern for the common people. The book is really a "page-turner" which is educational as well as enjoyable.

    I recent purchased Thomas Joseph Perez’ new book, “Katrina Lashes Arabia” and could not put it down. I love the e-version, as it’s convenient to take with me anywhere. This book is a real “page-turner.” It is obvious from the settings (the hospital where ex-Pat nurses work, the princely palace, the marketplace, etc.) that the author has knowledge of and experience in the Saudi Arabian culture. His descriptions make it all easy to imagine.

    Mr. Perez is a master of farce, sometimes even slapstick. “Katrina” will have you rooting for her character, eagerly anticipating what kind of situation she’ll get herself into next. The final chapter of the book is so fast paced and funny, it had me in hysterics.

    I would give the book an “R” rating because of the salty language, and sexual situations, but that certainly didn’t stop me from enjoying it very much. My husband is now reading it, and even though he doesn’t read often, he is also having a hard time putting it down.
