Hanna Mehdi, a young British-Pakistani woman, is forced to flee to Beirut when her father's bank collapses in mysterious circumstances.

Now holed up in one of the city's swankiest hotels, father and daughter spend their days at the horse track or by the hotel pool.

But when Hanna finds a photo of a severed head on Baba's laptop, she's forced to question the true extent of her father's transgressions.

Meeting her father's former associates, Hanna starts to question her own complicity. This female-centric thriller gets to grips with financial and familial intrigue: a stylish debut.
