THE HOUSE OF BAGHDAD
The first draft of this book was written in 1991 as a political satire. Regrettably, through the passage of time, the chilling and uncanny similarity emerged of the horrifying events of 9/11 2001. Those events spurred many authors to pen harrowing works of non-fiction about that situation and its aftermath, to say nothing of the continuing struggle between Christianity and Islam.
My story takes a more light-hearted view of a ruthless Iraqi Dictator who escapes his country in the nick of time. With the help of his loyal bodyguard, Mustafa, the womanizing "politician" makes it to Paris, then to Brazil where he finds asylum in the President's elegant villa and solace in the arms of Brazil's first Lady. The Brazilian President employs the help of a retired German officer to grill his guest about his plans to bomb America. However, "Doomsday", as he is called, manages to escape and make his way to Ireland for a round of plastic surgery before returning to Iraq.
This is an extravagant scenario involving adultery, the media and the film industry.
With a surprising ending, "THE HOUSE OE BAGHDAD" is an outrageous satire on the activities and destiny of a cruel Dictator and the state of a nation.
