From the publisher

A French intelligence officer, Assem, is tasked with tracking down a former member of the U.S. Special Forces suspected of drug trafficking during the War in Afghanistan. En route to Beirut he shares a night with Miriam, an Iraqi archaeologist, who is in a race against time to save ancient artefacts across the Middle East from the terrorist group ISIS. Punctuating these two storylines are vignettes from the bellicose past, all turning points in world history, each showing a will to continue in the face of defeat.
