In the middle eastern state of Jubayl, the Emir's son and heir is found dead beneath an oil rig that is just days from being sold to a neighbouring state.
Overseas police adviser Peter Craig, visiting the region to lecture on counterinsurgency, soon finds himself commandeered by the Embassy to help find the killer. All signs point to an oil company employee, but Craig's instincts say he's been framed – instincts that have little weight in a fragile autocracy where justice must be seen to be done, and swiftly.
Unravelling the dead Sheikh's network of spies, lovers and rivals leads Craig back to the oil rig via nightclubs, soukhs and sidestreets, and although he rightly senses the deadly forces at play, he’s ill-prepared for the truth when it finds him.
