It's a twenty-first century hauntingly familiar-and yet startlingly different from our own. Here the United States brokered a deal that ended World War I, and the Ottoman Empire never collapsed. And lording it over all sits the complex, seductive, and bloodthirsty North African metropolis of El Iskandryia. Almost nothing is what it seems to be in El Isk, and Ashraf Bey is no exception. Neither the rich Ottoman aristocrat everyone thinks he is, nor the minor street criminal once shipped off to prison when he fell foul of his Chinese Triad employers-the fact is that Raf has as little idea who he is as anyone else. With few clues and no money, all Raf has is a surname hinting at noble heritage and an arranged marriage to a woman who hates him. But nothing Ashraf al Mansur learns about himself is as unexpected-or as terrifying-as the brutal murder he's accused of committing. Now, as a hunted man with the welfare of a precocious young girl in his irresponsible hands, Raf must race after a killer through an unforgiving city as foreign to him as the truth he'll uncover about himself.

ID: 764003619

[EAN: 9780553587432], Fine, [PU: Spectra], Fiction|Science Fiction|General, Fiction|Mystery & Detective|Hard-Boiled, In this clever first book of a trilogy that blends alternative SF and hard- boiled mystery from British author Grimwood (Lucifer's Dragon, etc.), ZeeZe e, who has spent his youth largely in boarding schools and in trouble, is a lso Ashraf al-Mansur, though that identity is unknown to him. Whisked away from a Seattle prison, ZeeZee is transported to El Iskandryia, an exotic, e xquisitely detailed North African city. Whether Ashraf or ZeeZee, he's adap table but not compliant. The world of wealth and privilege he's expected to accept without question comes with strings he's not to question either, li ke marriage to the willful Zara. Misunderstanding and mishandling his preca rious situation, Ashraf becomes prime suspect in a murder, on the lam with only a vague understanding of where he is and who he is supposed to be. He' s not only responsible for his own fate but also, surprisingly, the sole pr otector of a young girl. Grimwood artfully unveils the changed world that h as developed in the many decades since WWI ended differently. Ashraf, a lif elong underdog and pawn, emerges as a resourceful and deadly foe, adapting quickly to survive in a game where the rules and the playing field shift re peatedly. SF and mystery fans will be pleased.
