Book Description
 

CITY ON THE EDGE by David Swinson - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by David Swinson.

In the wake of a baffling tragedy, 13-year-old Graham moves with his family to Beirut, Lebanon, a city on the edge of the sea and cataclysmic violence. Inquisitive and restless by nature, Graham suspects his State Department father is a CIA operative, and that their familyís fragile domesticity is merely a front for American efforts along the nearby Israeli border. Over the course of one year, 1974, Grahamís life will utterly change. Two men are murdered, his parentís marriage disintegrates, and Graham, along with his two ex-pat friends, run afoul of forces they cannot understand.

City on the Edge is elegiac, atmospheric, and utterly authentic. Itís the story of innocents caught within the American net of espionage, of the Lebanese transformed by such interference, of the children who ran dangerously beside the churning wheel of history. One part Stephen Kingís The Body and another John le Carreís A Perfect Spy, itís a transformative crime story told with heart and genuine experience.
