After his mother's death, Nuri and his exile father live a life of strange emptiness in their Cairo apartment with only the occasional hint of the father's risky political activities intruding. Then they meet Mona. The young, beautiful half-English, half-Arab woman sitting by the pool of the Magda Marina Hotel transfixes both the father and Nuri, but the life the three create is shattered when the father disappears.

It is true, as it is written on the cover of this book, that every time after postponing the reading, I wanted to immediately to continue reading... But, in the end, there is no denouement; there is no unraveling of knots, only hints on it. The whole book you’re waiting for answers to the questions, and in the end it turns out that only a part of them was answered, and even that was not a straightforward answer.
The author tries to inspire to reader, the idea of “what good man was the protagonist’s father, what a worthy one.” But after you learn some facts from his life, there is a conclusion that he was not all so wonderful human been, at least in his attitude towards women who loved him.

This is the story of a young boy whose mother dies and whose father remarries a young woman. The father is abducted. Similar in theme to "In the Country of Men".

I dragged myself through this book to its conclusion. Father disappearing and seeming to to nowhere. Would not recommed this book - what was the point to it all?
