The Damascus Cover

Author(s): Howard Kaplan

Location(s): Damascus, Cyprus, Jerusalem

Genre(s): Thriller

Era(s): 1970s



In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari
Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago, to
smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so
he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be
falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His
communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The
operation is only hours away and everything seems awry.
Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life.

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Sir John Hurt. Filmed in Casablanca
