did not like it

Set in the Arabian Gulf, Contract is a romantic, espionage, thriller novel. After more than a decade Steven Kemp and Helen resume a liaison while their building is being attacked by Saudi terrorists. But are they terrorists or are they freedom fighters? And what is the difference. They survive the siege and continue their affair under the nose of her diplomat husband. Harry is a a commercial attaché at the American Embassy. It is an interesting look a expat culture. But the novel is too wide sweeping to maintain coherency. The book needed serious editing.
