"As a flight from Dubai comes into London's Heathrow the aircraft hits turbulence and four people from different corners of the Arab world are thrown together: beautiful, lost Lamis, recently divorced from her wealthy Iraqi husband; Nicholas from Sotheby's, an expert on Islamic daggers; Iouche, noisy Amira, a Moroccan who lives off immoral earnings, and the transvestite Samir, with a monkey hidden in a basket." "We follow their intertwining lives in London. Amira masquerades as an Arab princess, hanging out at the Dorchester Hotel in search of her prey. Samir, now Amira's lodger, spends his days and nights on the Edgware Road dreaming of blond boys. And Nicholas and Lamis begin a passionate affair."--BOOK JACKET.
