Cairo 1973. British intelligence agent Lucy Vickers is on the run, her cover blown. Her colleague Mark Bellamy has just dumped a dead policeman and a Mercedes in the Nile. Can the former lovers salvage the secret mission that has brought them together on the eve of war with Israel? Or are they throwaway players in a game of Cold War politics?
As Lucy and Mark are reeled into a net of treachery, there is only one person to turn to: The enigmatic Egyptian-Armenian private eye Pierre Farag, who seems to be a step ahead of their every move.
Cairo Mon Amour is a gripping Cold War thriller and a poignant love story, woven around the first days of the Yom Kippur War.
