Marrakech, August. It’s the start of Ramadan, the hottest in memory. Karim Belkacem, a young police detective, is struggling to fast while working two jobs to pay for his sister’s wedding. As the heat rises, he finds himself caught up in a disturbing sequence of events. The corpse of a young girl is found dumped in a handcart. A security guard falls to his death. A muezzin chokes while giving the call to prayer. Is it the effect of Ramadan or something more sinister?
The investigation takes Karim to a twilight world inhabited by ruthless predators and rapacious foreigners, where ancient secrets lie hidden behind the high walls of the medina, and nothing is what it seems.
