Damascus Gate - Robert Stone

Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ.

Christopher Lucas is a jaded American journalist drifting between jobs in Jerusalem. Then a new assignment draws him to the depravity and duplicity on all sides of the struggle for the city's soul. His investigations of religious lunatics who have fallen victim to the 'Jerusalem Syndrome' leads him to Sonia, a beautiful Sufi and nightclub singer; Adam De Kuff, an unstable Jewish guru; Razz Melder, his strung-out, misguided apostle; and Jan Zimmer, a soldier of fortune who - for the right price - will place himself at the heart of the world's next flashpoint.
