Can an American journalist and a Kuwaiti horse breeder unravel a sadistic mercenary’s conspiracy before he brings bloodshed and violence against a stateless, discriminated population?
Writer Evan Davis is back in Blood Upon the Sands a political thriller from bestselling author Sheldon Charles. This time, work takes him to Kuwait under the patronage of affluent horse breeder Hamad Al-Bourisli. Hired to write about modern culture in Kuwait, he finds his calling in the work, as well as kinship with Hamad and intimacy with his beautiful cultural liaison, Najila.
When anonymous reports are left in his quarters, Evan discovers disturbing truths about the stateless Bedoon population. Since the earliest days of the country’s independence, they’ve faced underlying long-term discrimination from the Kuwaiti government which has been largely hidden and ignored for decades. Meanwhile, Maksim Bondreovich, an ex-KGB agent turned mercenary, begins manipulating the political climate in Kuwait to influence public opinion further against the Bedoon. Under the codename Shaytan, he spreads terror and chaos across the country while framing Bedoon citizens for the atrocities.
Time is running out before Shaytan makes his biggest play yet – bombing the Hotel Sultana and placing the blame solely on the disenfranchised Bedoon population. As rising racism and public dissent become more obvious, will Evan go against his friend and employer to see the truth come to light?
As the narrative weaves real-world history and current events seamlessly into an action thriller, Blood Upon the Sands is a gripping story of good men fighting to reveal truth amid rising chaos and hate.
