by: Phetra Novak
reviewed by: Becky
Early morning, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: Swedish correspondent cameraman Ebbe Skoog is out getting shots for an upcoming story and stumbles upon something he isn’t supposed to see. On a building site, on the outskirts of the city, four men looking a lot like the Mabahith—the secret police—are sending a bound man to a certain death by stoning.
With camera still rolling, Ebbe begins to retreat when a second man enters the scene and throws himself on top of the dying man, shielding him with his body, soothing with loving words. Ebbe’s reaction is immediate. Clutching his camera, he drags the screaming lover out of the rain of stones, and in a storm of sand, they flee into the brutal uncertainty of the desert.
Correspondent reporter Mattis Andersson is the wild card, the rebel. He’s also Ebbe’s only hope of getting out alive with his new companion, Aasim El-Batal, and the memory card holding the footage that will make Saudia Arabia burn in the eyes of human rights activists the world over.
With their past as lovers, and their present as colleagues and best friends who would take a bullet for each other, it now falls on Mattis to protect his and Ebbe’s future. But the Swedish government wants to silence them, unwilling to jeopardize years of lucrative weapons deals for “some petty gay love affair.” It’s an impossible mission that will draw on every strength the two men possess.
This will not be so much a review as it will be a thank you note to this author! Thank you Phetra, for daring to write a story that needed to be written, this book takes on subjects that are painful and the way she goes about it is amazing. Thank you for writing a book that is gritty and raw and real, this is a story I will not soon forget, nor would I want to.
This is a story of lives intertwined in the wake of tragedy, these 3 men go through things that no one ever should, yet they pull on strength and each other and persevere.
The think what I love most about this book is that it is not so much about a happy ending, as it is about these men proving that they won't break and that is more important than hearts and flowers in this story. You will feel every heartbreak and triumph with Ebbe, Mattis and Asaim and you will love every minute of it. Thank you so much Phetra, for a story of triumph and a story of substance that I will not soon forget.
