The third book in The Beirut Trilogy takes junior CIA case officer Walter Lukash back to 1975, on the eve of the Lebanese Civil War. Sent to Beirut for a year of Arabic language training without operational duties, Lukash becomes infatuated with the Paris of the Middle East. Oblivious of the violent forces preparing to tear the small country apart, he explores the fault lines of Lebanese society until they threaten to engulf him and those around him. Given a choice to evacuate or to stay and support the short-handed CIA Station from outside, without diplomatic immunity, Lukash endures a baptism by fire. As the country erupts in flames, he discovers that the life of an intelligence officer is far from what he expected, and that he is not the man he and those around him thought him to be.
