On a brief visit to Cairo to support an investigation her fiance, a Jewish American journalist, has undertaken, Salma is caught up in the machinations of a new, radical Islamist group with a vendetta against her father, a man with his own dark side. A former lover and Islamist, kidnaps her. He forces her to flee with him from Cairo to Aswan in the far south of Egypt. As they navigate the  backroads, Salma, a privileged Egyptian-American, finds herself hiding under a burqa, running desert sandstorms and relying on the goodwill of poor villagers.

A page-turner, Escape to Aswan is not only a political thriller but a dramatic telling of the clashes of culture and class in the Arab world. 

About this Author

Like her protagonist, the author is a bicultural, bilingual Egyptian American with extended family in Cairo and a personal stake in the issues her political thriller raises. Having been a Visiting Professor at the American University in Cairo (AUC) and traveled throughout the Middle East on behalf of the United States Department of State and others to train Arab women for political empowerment, she knows of what she speaks.
