The heir to an oil-rich Arab sheikdom is drawn into a global conspiracy of decadence, money, and terror in this gripping tale from the bestselling author.
He's known as "the Pirate," a millionaire business tycoon and globetrotting playboy who controls one of the most powerful oil-producing regions in the Middle East. A man of shocking contradictions, he is devoted to his business, his Muslim faith, and to the sensuous pleasures of the Western world. But Baydr Al Fay has a secret history that even he is unaware of—a story that began decades earlier in a raging desert sandstorm—and its shattering repercussions will be felt from Beirut to Paris to Los Angeles.
Baydr's past and his vices have made him the target of a ruthless terrorist organization willing to hold his loved ones hostage. With his life, his family, and his empire threatened, the Pirate must now join forces with a sworn enemy to protect everything that he holds dear.
