A wealthy, cultured Iranian family now living in the U.S. is being blackmailed because someone has found out that they are actually illegal aliens. Discovery would mean deportation back to Iran, which would be a death sentence for them. The family calls upon Fiddler, an ex-violinist with a talent for dealing with danger, to find out who the blackmailers are. In the process, Fiddler becomes involved with an aging Mossad operative and his beautiful but haunted daughter.
The story is fast-paced and engrossing, but the political attitudes of the characters seem dated now (which is the reason for only 3 stars). The exciting action climax was fun to read.
- and I like every one of them.
These are early books by Lowell under her Ann Maxwell pen name, written in conjunction with he husband. Read in sequence, they describe the on again - off again relationship between Fiddler and his ex-wife (but still lover) Fiora. They have the complication of Fiddler's borderline-legal attempts to help peolpe out of trouble, especially in dealing with both white-collar and drug-related criminals.
These are very enjoyable short reads.
This book is from a series I didn't know about before.

Great series. Hope Ms. Lowell continues with Fiddler and Fiora. I read entire series and couln't get enough. Fiddler is a unique hero and Fiora a truly feminist heroine.Published on July 29, 2013 by M. Sandrock
