The legendary exploits of Lawrence of Arabia are the starting point for this captivating World War I suspense novel.
As the future of Europe is being decided in the muddy trenches of the Western Front, Lieutenant Thomas Edward Lawrence is thousands of miles away, toiling in the map room of the British Army’s general headquarters in Cairo. But the young intelligence officer has big ideas - none bigger than his vision of a unified Arabia free of its Ottoman rulers.
Before T. E. Lawrence can become Lawrence of Arabia, however, he must first contend with the notorious German spy Wilhelm Wassmuss. Local tribes are capturing British soldiers at the German’s behest, and the War Office has sent an assassin to take care of the problem once and for all. It is Lawrence’s job to get Captain Quinn within range of his target, a task made all the more difficult by Wassmuss’ deep knowledge of the desert and its people. In matching wits with a sinister European nemesis, Lawrence starts down a path that will change the face of the Middle East forever.
