Abstract:

Overview: Three players. One city. A whole world of political games in which allegiances are never clear, and outcomes are never guaranteed. Sophie Kohl confesses to her husband, a mid-level American diplomat in Hungary, that she had an affair while they were in Cairo. Minutes later, he is shot and killed. Stan Bertolli, a Cairo-based CIA agent, has fielded his share of midnight calls. But his heart skips a beat when, this time, he hears the voice of the only woman he ever truly loved ask why her husband has been assassinated. Omar Halawi has worked in Egyptian intelligence for years, and he knows how to play the game. But the murder of a diplomat in Hungary has ripples all the way to Cairo, and Omar must follow the fallout wherever it leads.
