Publisher's Summary

Jacob Seger arrives in Lebanon ready to embrace his future. He's landed his first job in the world of international diplomacy, and he's determined to change the world. When he meets the handsome and mysterious Yassim at a glamorous party, he quickly becomes swept up into a passionate, obsessive affair that renders everything else in Jacob’s life insignificant.

But three weeks later, Jacob recognizes his own face in the newspaper. He is wanted on terrorism charges. Has Yassim set him up? Is he now a pawn in a murderous plot? Jacob doesn't know who he can trust. Only that he needs to flee Beirut - and fast.

At once a moving love story and a gripping adventure, The Friend is an intelligent, urgent thriller that casts light on the dark threats facing the world today.
