About this product
- DescriptionSet against the 1980 American presidential election and the Iranian hostage crisis, Qays Tutunchi is able to solicit and utilize information from both sides of the conflict for personal profit. A culturally and linguistically fluent, amoral individual possessing a vast array of acquaintances, contacts, and resources, Qays positions himself to profit by manipulating world events that could influence an American presidency. This fiction takes its inspiration from the longevity of the October Surprise hostage conspiracy theory that Reagan's campaign orchestrated the continued incarceration of hostages to benefit his election. Investigated and asked to testify on the subject by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Cave's unique expertise provides readers with an intriguing credibility that only furthers the scope of the book. A gripping new vel of international intrigue and high stakes, October 1980 is a must have addition to the collection of any fan of international thrillers. This deftly written vel will turn the genre on its heels as it expertly samples the machinations that lie behind the curtain and under the table, post-i-pardeh va zeer-i-meez, of international politics.
