A lethal thriller of Islamic terrorists and the Axis of Evil by the author of The Poet Game. A world-weary young American finds himself on a quest that thrusts him through three continents where he is confronted by drug dealers and assassins, Middle Eastern agents and embittered Western converts to Islam, as well as powerful Moslem Shiite clerics who run the clandestine arm of one of the most insidious security services ever assembled.
