About the Author

Abdelilah Hamdouchi, born in Meknès, Morocco, in 1958, was one of the first writers of police fiction in the Arabic language. Three of his police novels, which touch on democratic and human rights reform, Bled Dry, Whitefly, and The Final Bet, have been translated into English. Hamdouchi is also an award-winning screenwriter with many film and television scripts to his credit. He lives in Rabat, Morocco.
Peter Daniel, a longterm resident of Egypt, has worked as teacher of Arabic as a foreign language and an Arabic to English translator for many years.
