“Into this colourful tapestry are woven the intimate stories of Dr. Malcolm Adams, the successful surgeon who goes to Paris to rebuild his shattered life; of Maia Obenpharo, the golden one of Parisian haute couture and once a ragged shepherdess in the Atlas Mountains; of Roger Obenpharo, dedicated leader of the Algerian underground; and of Benari Obenpharo, head of the dynastic Obenpharo banking family, who looks from his penthouse office across the world of international finance.  Citizens and crusaders, idealists and libertines, they move along the ageless Seine, through a cobra nest of Algerian thugs; into a small hidden house in the thick walls of an ancient city; under the lights of a hospital operating-theatre in the dark of night.  These are the ingredients of a story of breadth which has all the topicality of the daily headlines.”
