Overview

A tense thriller that exposes contemporary Egypt and Cairo’s seedy nightlife, Vertigo has attracted critical acclaim and has been reprinted several times in Arabic. Ahmed, a society photographer in a celebrated Cairo nightclub, witnesses a friend horrifically killed in a fight between young business rivals. Forced to escape the scene of the crime and go into hiding, Ahmed is ensnared in a web of cover- ups and crimes whose perpetrators will stop at nothing to hide. In this sprawling political thriller, Ahmed is forced to confront ruthless players. It’s a game where the penalty for failure could be his life.
