Summary

Against the bloody backdrop of a country simmering with racial tension, friendships are tested, beliefs are tried, and the prejudices of years are challenged...Unaware of the inner turmoil of Kuwait, Evan Davis enters as an employee of Al Hakim, a benevolent Kuwaiti horse-breeder, hired to change the country’s perception on the world’s stage.

But all is not what it seems - when documents detailing the atrocities done to the Bedoon are thrust into Evan’s hands anonymously, he is forced to act. But wherever he turns mysteries and secrets abound.

An unknown third party has hired an ex-KGB assassin and former Siberian Rime agent, Maksim Bondreovich, to sow discontent within the population, splitting its racial groups, casting a red haze of terrible bloodshed with a final, lethal objective - the expulsion of an entire class of people.

Can Evan open his employer’s eyes to the racial tensions which are boiling over in his own beloved country? Will the assassin succeed in his heinous objective? Moreover, will those behind it all stay hidden or will they be brought to justice?

It all comes to a breath-taking head in a climactic and tension-fraught assault on the Hotel Sultana. Will Maksim’s succeed in his heinous plot and paint the Kuat Zurqa’, the Hotel’s 15 story wall of blue glass, red with blood, or will the truth be revealed in time?

A suspenseful thriller that will keep you nailed to the edge of your seats, Sheldon Charles weaves a masterful tale centered in real-world history and based on the current situation of Kuwait’s Bedoon population.

Great Real To Life Story

I could not put it down. It grabs you from the first paragraph to the last and final sentence. I can only hope he is working on his next book.

My kind of book.

With all that is going on in this country it wouldn’t surprise me to see something like this taking place. However, being an ordinary working stiff we would never know about it. I can only hope that there are people at a level that would try and do the right thing knowing the price they would have to pay.

Great Book.

I got a deal on this book and bought it, which I probably would not have done at full price. If you want authenticity from an author who knows what he is talking about, buy this book.

Excellent book.

This thriller was engaging from the jump and never stopped. I was very surprised to find it was a debut offering. This was a very good listen from a first time author.

Absolutely Loved It!

This is one of my favorite books! I like good guys that have no mercy for the bad guys and this one does not disappoint! Much like Sheldon Charles , Reece is relentless and merciless! The action is nonstop and paced perfectly.

Must listen!

This is the beginning of something awesome here! Simple as that to me. I'm not one to overcomplicate things. I also don't want to spoil the book for you. Listen it and enjoy the ride. You will not be disappointed.
