Join us at Dartmouth to hear Ezzedine Fishere, Dartmouth Visiting Professor in Middle Eastern Studies, discuss his new novel, The Egyptian Assassin.
A lawyer-turned-terrorist is catapulted on a mission traversing Cairo, Sudan, Paris and Afghanistan in this revenge thriller- deftly written by a former Middle East political insider.
A lifetime ago, Fakhreddin had been an idealistic young lawyer, seeking to fight corruption from his modest quarter of Cairo. Then, a botched attempt on his life forced him to flee the country, propelling him on a wild journey that would lead to Afghanistan’s jihadi training camps. He was transformed into a trained killer, and never once lost sight of his goal: revenge. But did he lose sight of the only person that really mattered to him, his son, Omar. At the very core of Fakhreddin's bold, nail-biting exploits are his broken family, his broken heart, and his search for redemption and a way home.
Ezzedine C. Fishere is an acclaimed Egyptian writer, academic, and diplomat.
