The Worm in the Rose
'Tom Stacey has surprisingly beaten Graham Greene on his own turf…extremely well written, this is a singularly exciting, compelling novel...Tom Stacey knows and understands the Arab world exceedingly well'
Washington Times

When the heir to a remote sheikhdom in the Gulf is killed in a shooting accident on the Estate of his former school-friend the politician Timothy Lunt, ex-Fleet Street foreign correspondent Anthony Guise is sucked into a corrupt world of blackmail, betrayal and intrigue - and the ambitions of a group of slick Western expats. His self-appointed assignment takes him from the Welsh hills to the parched Arabian hinterland, into murky power politics and the dark places of the human heart.
