EBook Traitor (EPUB, PDF)

by Stephen Daisley

Book review

What would make a soldier betray his country? In the battle-smoke and chaos of Gallipoli, a young New Zealand soldier helps a Turkish doctor fighting to save a boy's life. Then a shell bursts nearby; the blast that should have killed them both consigns them instead to the same military hospital. Mahmoud is a Sufi. A whirling dervish, he says, of the Mevlevi order. He tells David stories. Of arriving in London with a pocketful of dried apricots. Of Majnun, the man mad for love, and of the saint who flew to paradise on a lion skin. You are God, we are all gods, Mahmoud tells David; and a bond grows between them. A bond so strong that David will betray his country for his friend.Stephen Daisley's astonishing debut novel is a story of war and of love-how each changes everything, forever. Traitor is that rarest of things- a work of fiction that will transport the reader, heart and soul, into another realm.
