Ferrigno, Robert - Prayers for the Assassin
Second-hand books in good condition. Images sourced from the internet. All books are cleaned before shipment/collection.
America, thirty-five years in the future, a very different country from today. It is now the Islamic Republic; calls to prayer echo across the cities and the Black Robes, the enforcers of public virtue, prowl the streets on the lookout for inappropriate dress or behaviour. The fear of terrorist attacks is pervasive. As the story opens a beautiful young historian, Sarah, the niece of the head of state security, has disappeared. Her lover, Rakkim, a Fedayeen warrior, fears she is in danger. He is right. She has uncovered an explosive secret that threatens the very foundations of the New Order. She is running for her life, hunted by Darwin, the State's elite assassin, who was trained in the same unit as Rakim. Her safety and the future of the world depend upon Rakkim's Fedayeen skills and his ability to outwit a brilliant psychopathic killer. A bloody, nerve-racking chase takes them through the looking-glass world of the Islamic States of America, and culminates dramatically as Rakkim and Sarah battle to expose the truth.
