Description

Dubai is a melting pot where oil, money and glamor are fueling greed and success, envy and challenge. Through tumultuous days, the characters of a human parade plot to achieve their own selfish ends. Their paths will cross, aspirations will clash, dreams will crumble, passions will flourish and pursuits will collide. There is Jon, a candid young engineer; Rashed, the shrewd secret policeman; Malek, the unconventional air force pilot; Mo, the suicide bomber on an Al Qaeda mission; Alaistair, the old oil engineer planning his retirement; Katherina, the flashy socialite; Louis, the womanizing diplomat; and Boris the gangster, all tussling towards their own purposes, their own ends for some. On the surface, life in Dubai sparkles with luxury shops, fast cars, exciting horse races and polo games. Yet, behind the glow of the visible scenery, in the shadows of the majlis, in the corridors of power, in the back alleys of the poor people, an incredibly varied populace burgeons with all the desires of the world - the Dubai Bazaar.

About Michel Gauthier

Michel Gauthier was educated in Brussels where he graduated as a construction engineer. His career took him to Africa, the Middle East, the UK and the Far East where he worked as an executive of construction companies. His career continued as management consultant and arbitrator in the large conflicts which resulted from the crash of 2008. Michel now lives and writes in Pattaya, Thailand. Michel is joint author of 'The Contractor's Handbook', a refreshing review of the contracting profession which bridges the gap left by academia between engineering, business management and prevailing regulations. He has also written a collection of short stories 'The Edge of the Volcano' and a historical novel 'Malplaquet Revisite' (in French). He has translated into French three books of short stories by William Peskett: 'Le Chant Ensorcelant de la Sirene', 'Brume sur la Jungle' and 'Riz Gluant a la Mangue'. http: //jmgauthier.com
