Review

"A haunting, harrowing story of civil war, a gut-wrenching account of how neighbour can turn on neighbour and how easily and brutally lives can be devastated, written by someone who actually lived it." - Raymond Khoury, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Templar

"This is a book that gets under your skin, into your head, and won't let go." - Susanna J. Sturgis. Editor, Writer.

"Sawan's real-life novel allows us to see with ironic humanity into a violent world that too few people really understand." - Patricia Keeney, novelist and poet

"An action-packed morality tale set during the Lebanese Civil War. A breathless Bond-ish adventure torn from today's headlines." - Don Rubin, Professor, York University, Toronto

"I was curious to read Al Shabah, I wanted to know how close it is to the truth. The novel details the truth itself. But the descriptions are not normal, I felt like looking through camera movements that detailed and reflected the confrontation between Paul and Bassam, or the clash of cultures between terrorism and murder on the one hand, and the struggle for existence on the other." - Georges Hayek, Journalist, Author.

Product Description

"A haunting, harrowing story of civil war ... written by someone who lived it."--Raymond Khoury, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Last Templar

Although a work of fiction, AL SHABAH: An Assassin’s Story, is based on the true story of the author’s experiences growing up in Lebanon during that country’s bloody civil war, as well as his time as a counter-terrorist operative. The story follows “Paul” from his childhood in the Bekaa Valley to adulthood where he finds himself recruited as a trained killer by both Israel’s Mossad and the CIA.

A tale of obsession and revenge, in this first book of the Al Shabah Assassin Series, Paul ultimately finds himself on the trail of a childhood nemesis who had become the feared charismatic leader of a violent jihadist group. This fast-paced thriller takes Paul around the world in his personal search for truth and justice, and a final showdown with a yellow-eyed terrorist who one violent day ended Paul’s childhood and set him on the road to becoming an assassin.

From The Author: "AL SHABAH is a work of fiction, not a memoir, but my characters are based on composites of real people, and the major events described in these pages are historically accurate. I should know, because I lived them."
