Lulu Sawyer arrives in Marrakech hoping to rekindle her romance with businessman Ian Drumm. It's the perfect cover for her assignment with the CIA: tracing the flow of money from donors to radical Islamic groups. As she navigates the complex interface of East and West, Lulu stumbles into unforeseen intrigues: a young Muslim girl, Suma, is on the run from her brother intent on an honour killing; and a beautiful Saudi woman, Gazi, is vying for Ian's love, leaving her husband in a desperate bid to escape her repressive society. The more Lulu immerses herself in the workings of Marrakech, the more questions emerge as beneath the surface of this polite expatriate community lies a more sinister world laced with double standards as well as double agents.
