He was born during a furious battle in Iraqi Kurdistan in 1939, delivered by his father's body-guard, who at that moment became Rama's own, for life. And then it is 1976. Rama is living in the United States, a rich playboy, businessman, and gambler. But he is about to begin his long journey home, to protect his father against his ancient enemies and their new cohort-the United Petroleum Company, which knows, just as Rama knows, what riches lie beneath the old sheik's land.
