Published in Britain and the US under the nom-de-plume of Kendal J Peel (‘d’ye ken John Peel’), Tom Stacey tells the story of Daniel Schofield, an oddball Englishman heading a Saudi-Based landscape gardening team, who conceives a crime on an unheard-of scale, in the cause of a Dostoyevskian will for havoc and at fearful risk to its perpetrator. It is set at the end of the 1970s at the brink of an Arab assault upon Israel.
“Topkapi-style suspense and sophisticated political intrigue … the strong narrative is memorable for more than just plot. Thrillers of this kind are really novels with a backbone.”
