Description
In Cairo, private investigator Makana is called into the office of his new client, a powerful art dealer known as Kasabian. Kasabian wants him to track down a famous painting that went missing from Baghdad during the US invasion. All the dealer can tell Makana is that the piece was smuggled into Egypt by an Iraqi war criminal who doesn't want to be found.The world of art is a far cry from the shady streets and alleyways of the Cairo that Makana knows, but he soon finds out that this side of the city has its own dark underbelly. As he sets out to find the lost work of art and those involved in the case begin to die in horrific ways Makana finds himself entangled in a mystery that many have attempted to keep hidden.The trail will lead him back into the dark days of the war and threaten to send the new life he has built for himself up in flames.
