Gore Vidal - Thieves Fall Out
| Crime Fiction | Hard-Boiled Mystery/Noir |
| epub | 1.4 mb |
Hired to smuggle an ancient artefact out of Egypt, Pete Wells finds himself the target of killers and femme fatales – and just one step away from triggering a revolution that will set Cairo aflame.
One part Casablanca and one part torn-from-the-headlines tabloid reportage, this novel also offers a startling glimpse of Egypt in turmoil—written over half a century ago, but as current as the news streaming from that region today.
