The Poet Game

(2000)
A novel by

 
Readers of the taut, stylish novels of Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and Charles McCarry will enjoy this debut by a talented young writer from the Middle East.

In the wake of the World Trade Center bombing, New York City is ground zero for an intricate web of betrayals and double-crosses in the shadowy world of Muslim radicals. Samir Amir arrives in Brooklyn via Iran, and into a world of militants, arms suppliers, and spies .An operative from a hidden branch of the Iranian counter-intelligence apparatus, Sami is the son of an American mother, was raised in a Catholic school in Tehran, and has always stood apart from his countrymen.Now, because of his background, his boss sends him to the States to investigate rumored terrorist plots that are to culminate around Christmas and New Years, several weeks away.But then Sami intuits that he has been set up, and at the same time falls in love with an American woman who has been his confidante and cohort.When the truth of his mission becomes clear, Sami resolves to stop what he inadvertently has set in motion.Full of sharp, intelligent language and glimpses of a city that few of us really know, THE POET GAME is a fascinating and exciting ride beneath bridges, behind warehouse doors, and through the locked corridors of an invisible New York.
