The President has been kidnapped. There will be no ransom – no negotiations. Either the President’s forces withdraw from the Terrorist’s lands or, in three days on the stroke of midnight, he will be executed on live TV.
Hiding out in a cave in the desert with his master and fellow kidnappers, Hassan believes the battle is almost won. Then, from the burning, empty plains a man in black appears. He carries only an antique dagger at his waist and a small golden bird in a cage. His purpose, he claims, is to help them in their mission. He has been sent by his master. And torture is his trade.
The President, The Terrorist and The Torturer is a metaphysical thriller and modern-day fable. The narrative and the broadly archetypal characters are simply yet elegantly drawn in a style evocative of One Thousand And One Arabian Nights. Simultaneously, the plot twists and the pages keep turning in a way familiar to any devotee of the contemporary crime or adventure thriller.
