Robin knew Paul wasn't perfect. But he said they were so lucky to have found each other, and she believed it was true.
In the heady strangeness of Morocco, he is everything she wants him to be - passionate, talented, knowledgeable. She is convinced that it is here she will finally become pregnant.
But when Paul suddenly disappears, and Robin finds herself the prime suspect in the police inquiry, everything changes.
As her understanding of the truth starts to unravel, Robin lurches from the crumbling art deco of Casablanca to the daunting Sahara, caught in an increasingly terrifying spiral from which there is no easy escape.
With his acclaimed ability to write page-turners that also make you think, Douglas Kennedy takes the reader on a roller-coaster journey into a heart of darkness that asks the question: what would you do if your life depended on it?

I loved the story and the way it was read out. The unexpected events, that followed Robin and Paul trip to Morocco was gripping and intriguing, I could not stop listening till I reach the end...
I'm not sure why I persevered with this book. It irritated me - the main characters and the somewhat farfetched plot which seemed to be designed as a vehicle for the author to hang his various views. Too much untranslated French too!

Fascinating Morocco, and an emotional tale of adversity, betrayal and courage. Great narration - highly recommended. My first Douglas Kennedy, must read more.
