Book Description

Newlywed Sasha Del Mira thinks she’s left her harrowing past with the CIA behind her…until her husband is murdered. There’s only one man who can be behind this: Saif Ibn Mohammed al-Aziz, once Sasha’s lover and now the leader of a Muslim terrorist group. Seeking revenge, Sasha returns to the CIA and goes undercover in pursuit of Saif. Meanwhile, Saif plots an Arab Spring uprising intended to violently overthrow the Saudi Arabian government in the holiest of places at the holiest of times: the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Can Sasha save the world from a fundamentalist reign of terror, or will she be forced to become the madman’s wife?

With this third installment of the Sasha Del Mira series, the valiant heroine of Arab Summer joins the ranks of blockbuster covert-ops stars such as Jason Bourne and Jack Ryan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Yet! January 22, 2013
By John
Format:Kindle Edition
WOW! I have thoroughly enjoyed each book written by David and in Arab Summer, he has hit the highest mark yet. This was an outstanding read and so very realistic. There are several scenes which made me feel like I was right in the middle of the fight, especially when Saif's Black Hawks attack. Sasha and Tom are making a good connection and I hope there will be more to come.
I know little of the Saudi heiracy but came away thinking I had a great middle eastern history lesson. Very, very interesting. Also to wear out an old saying "just couldn't put this book down".

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-pounding Excitement in the Muslim World January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the fourth book I've read by David Lender, and it ranks up there with the best of them. It has heart-pounding excitement, spies, high level intrigue, US and Saudi corridors of power, a clash of civilizations, and a story of unbridled suspense and action. Lender's books have the same excitement and drama as books by Robert Ludlum, Ken Follett, and Tom Clancy. In Arab Summer, Lender departs from his more familiar themes of Wall Street and high finance, to set a powerful story in the heart of Saudi Arabia, the seat of Muslim power and culture. With the clever hat tip, the historic and tumultuous Arab Spring is the springboard to Lender's revolutionary Arab Summer. If you think the Arab Spring brought major change to the Middle East and North Africa, Lender's story propels it to an even higher cataclysmic level in the very center of the Islamic world in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. His book adds a thrilling geopolitical roller coaster ride through the intrigues of Arab culture, the Saudi royal family, jihadist terrorists, and revolution in the holiest of Islamic cities. The pages turn fast as one follows the compelling story of the protagonist, a beautiful, young American woman recruited by the CIA for a daring mission across continents that never seems to end. Her life and relationships with very powerful men drive the story forward in a testosterone fueled blaze of adventure. All the while, Lender gives us a knowledgeable lens into the unique culture and customs of Saudi Arabia, and the different power factions competing for supremacy in the Muslim world. If you want mind-numbing excitement and suspense in an exotic setting with compelling characters, Arab Spring is a great read that you will not be able to put down! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab this one!! January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A double story - the synopsis of the Saudis, their Muslim religion, beliefs and customs and a
super mystery of political struggles of the people and the Royals. David Lender is the #1 Best
Selling Kindle author, as judged by Kindle for a reason.

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Sasha Del Mira was sold at the age of 15 to a royal named Prince Yassar, the Finance and Economy Minister of Saudi Arabia as a concubine for his oldest son, Ibrahim. He came to be the loving father she had never had...

Saif Ibn Mohammed al-Aziz was a recent university graduate when he met Sasha and they fell in love...but he could not quite get over her being a whore, a concubine...

Much had happened since then...

One of the reasons Saif had fallen for Sasha was that she was not only beautiful but she acted independently to embrace and support her beliefs...

He had learned and he had made his choices since then. His father had lost his business to the royals, the government who had seen when a business was profitable and created their own business, then threatened customers to buy from them, forcing the owners of the independent businesses to suffer.

Saif was now actively leading the al-Mujari, a Muslim terrorist group. They were working toward the takeover of the government! The Shiek was now being tested, questioned, to prove he was the coming Mahdi. They would announce his coming during the Hajj!

But deep inside, Saif was merely playing a role. He idolized Alan Rickman and would take on parts that Rickman had played. Even more dangerous was that he believed Sasha would be...his leading lady. Sasha had deeply loved her husband, as he loved her--he was the only one with whom she felt safe, and now he had been taken from her. So as she killed the man who had committed the murder, she asked why before he died. He was only too happy to whisper the name--Saif!

Almost immediately she retreated and spent time with her Swami until she felt she could return to some type of life.
