Back home, he discovers a stranger among the familiar faces of childhood – the enigmatic Mustafa Sa’eed. Mustafa takes the young man into his confidence, telling him the story of his years in London, of his brilliant career as an economist, and of the series of fraught and deadly relationships with European women that led to a terrible public reckoning and his return to his native land.
