Goodreads Synopsis: At an ancient cafe in Cairo, two veteran spies plot a covert mission to resolve – once and for all – the Israeli – Palestinian conflict. The pledge: Israel will make a major concession as part of the peace treaty. In Singapore, Jethro Westrope, a magazine journalist, stumbles onto the scene of a murder: the beautiful Niki Kishwani directs him, in her last breath, to a digital recorder, evidence that puts Jethro’s life in serious danger. And, much worse, he is framed for Niki’s murder. Jethro sets out to find Niki’s killer and is drawn into a web of deception and intrigue involving officials from the Singaporean, Israeli, and American governments, each with a complex, competing, and potentially deadly agenda. Against this pulse-pounding backdrop, Jethro races to find answers and save himself -yet nothing is as it seems. He finds himself at the centre of a political plot so diabolical and sweeping in its world implications that he is stunned to discover tomorrow’s news headlines today. He is being set up not only as a murderer but as an assassin, and something much larger than his own fate is in his hands.

MY RATING: 5 Starts


* The author of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect less than that, I will always give my honest opinion, like it or not *

I’m going to start saying that this book has lots of action in it, it is so interesting and you always want to know more and more and you don’t want to stop reading because you get lost with all the action in it… it makes you feel that you are actually there, it makes you feel that you are in the midle of the story, in the midle of the book.

Khaled, with his type of writting takes us to Singapore, he actually makes us see and feel all that tention that is present in this book, he describes really well everything, all the conspiracy is very well thought.

I think that the main character, Jet, is really likable and he is one of the reasons why this book is a real page turner, he’s intelligent, he’s always in trouble and that makes you want to know more.

I loved the plot of this book and I especially loved the end of the story because when it was almost over, when everything was kind of “lost”, like… “the bad guy was about to live”, something happened that made me quite happy, but if you want to know what that is you need to read the book because I am not going to spoil you here !

This could totally be a TV Show or a movie, and it would just be amazing.
