Vertigo, Hardback Book

Vertigo Hardback

Illustrated by Aaron Zenz



Ahmed, a society photographer in a celebrated Cairo nightclub, witnesses a friend horrifically killed in a fight between young business rivals.

Forced to escape the scene of the crime and go into hiding, Ahmed is ensnared in a web of cover-ups and crimes whose perpetrators stop at nothing to hide.

In this sprawling political thriller, Ahmed is forced to confront ruthless players.

It's a game where the penalty for failure could be his life.

First published in Arabic in 2007, and by BQFP in 2010, this is a tense thriller that exposes contemporary Egypt and Cairo's seedy nightlife.
