This dangerous world of drama and mystery takes you from Australia to Afghanistan to France... then the action moves to Marseille where honour and revenge, lust and love, family affection and duty bring two love affairs to very different outcomes.

Alexander Logan, author of Two Women: Two Worlds explores how religious sensitivities and sexual power play out in the context of Islam and decaying European values. Revenge and honour, the hypocrisy and the self-interest of the fanatic, rob love of its innocence.

Tom Grace, a Brisbane surgeon, attempts to find his kidnapped lover, Kaye Reynolds, a journalist, in Afghanistan. Instead, he is abducted by an arms dealer, Ahmed Bakir, and flown to Marseille as Bakir's prisoner. Tom had no idea Kaye was working for the Afghanistan Women's Revolutionary Association with its leader, Minnah Muetton, a French educated Afghan. Bakir hates Minnah's husband and has him murdered. Amadullah, devout Muslim and Minnah's brother seeks revenge; it's a matter of honour.
