New Release: Flowers of Baghdad by Bruce Lyman

by - August 13th, 2012

Written by a former Australian intelligence officer, this assured and breathtaking debut novelĀ brings into luminous focus the lives of ordinary people in strife-torn Baghdad

Fear and danger are always present in Baghdad.

Two very different men, Malik and Aadil, strangers to each other, know this only too well. All they want for their families is a normal and safe existence, free from the terror and desperation of bombs, gunfire and homelessness.

This tale of intrigue, suspense, friendship and hope reveals how each of them is compelled to find the humanity and beauty in a world torn apart.
